Welcome to San Sebastian, the pearl of the Cantabrian sea, an elegant coastal town with influences of the French Riviera. Enjoy a walking tour of the most interesting spots starting with the central farmers market where you can feel the freshness of the produce they sell in a lively market where locals gather every day to buy local food. This is slow food t its best.
For lunch, you will be guided to the most interesting spots to sample “pintxos” during a pintxos bar crawl. You will taste innovative pintxos made with local ingredients as well as the most traditional bites.
After that, a stroll along San Sebastian beach where you can stop in a bar for a coffee or a drink will be the cherry on the cake for a sunny afternoon.
Basque Country is a big producer of apple cider. We have designed a plan for lovers of cider and Basque gastronomy for the evening including a guided tour of a traditional cider house followed by a magnificent traditional menu including chorizo sausage cooked in cider, salt cod omelette, salt cod with peppers, bone-in ribeye steak, Basque cheese, quince jelly, walnuts, almond tiles and cigarettes from Tolosa. All washed down with cider, served directly from the kupela or barrel in true txotx ritual fashion.
