Good way to cross to Getxo and have a look around there. You can make a roundtrip if you take metro line 2 from Bilbao, then cross to Getxo and there take metro line 1 back to Bilbao. Costs 4.20 euro's in total.

40 cents to cross is really underprized was our opinion. The can ask an euro . To lit a candle in a church is more expensive. It is a short crossing but nice to experience the bridge. The walk above the hangbridge is 7.50 euro...More

Heard about this technical masterpiece and was amazed to be able to use the last remaining piece ... so many were in France and all destructed by war or taking down by will.
