people sometimes ask as they head to Madrid, Barcelona and Seville, but no-one ever poses that same question once they're there. Unspoilt San Sebastian is a great alternative to Madrid and is a true foodie's paradise.
To understand more about San Sebastian’s naval History, visit the Museo Naval
. This museum offers an in-depth look into the Basque seafaring tradition, but if you’re looking for more adventurous activities, why not visit the Parque de Atracciones
; an amusement park just outside the town. It’s great fun for all the family.
San Sebastian has a buzzing nightlife scene, especially in La Parte Vieja. The streets in the Old Town are packed with people from dusk until dawn, especially on weekends. Try to squeeze yourself into one of the many bars and hang around the pintxos
counter, or if there’s no space inside, then just take your drink outside and watch the world go by until the club doors open.
Things to do:
San Sebastian is home to one of Europe's finest urban beaches - the Playa de la Concha. Look no further than the streets of Parte Vieja, the old quarter, where lots of bars with huge hanging hams serve delicious pintxos and tapas. Give your taste buds a holiday treat!
San Sebastian is easily reached by taking a high speed TGV service from Paris to Irun then transferring to a local service to San Sebastian. Prices start at just £128 return.
