San Sebastian is a city of sophistication and relaxation, Old World charm and modern luxury, cobbled lanes, and golden beaches. Your flight arrives at San Sebastian Airport, where your private transfer greets you upon your arrival. The city fills with the aroma of the sea. Michelin Star restaurants open their doors along the cobbled lanes and boulevards, offering an array of scents from sautéing garlic to aromatic fennel, with each fragrance complementing the sea breeze. Surfers carve the waves rolling over Plaza de Gros. Elegant boutique shops line the lanes of Area Romantica, named for the 19th-century buildings connecting Playa de la Concha to the banks of the Urumea River.
You take the time to settle into the comforts of your luxury hotel overlooking the turquoise waters and verdant patches of forest along the Bay of Biscay. For an unforgettable introduction to the seaside city, you make your way to the summit of Monte Igueldo, located west of the town. A funicular travels up to the summit. The mountain reaches a height of nearly 525 feet above sea level, providing a perfect panorama of the rolling verdant mountains, graceful shoreline, and relaxed beachgoers along Playa de la Concha.
