Driving from San Sebastian to La Rioja to Bilbao

Jump to last reply

We are staying at the Hotel de Londres in San Sebastian for 6 nights then planning to rent a car from Hertz to the Marques de Riscal hotel in La Rioja for 2 nights then driving to the Silken Gran hotel in Bilbao for 1 night before flying out to Paris from the Bilbao airport.

This will be our first time here and a little apprehensive about the drive only because we've never done it. My bf will be driving and I'm the navigator. All I have is the 573 Regional Spain North map by Michelin which includes Basque Country, Navarra and La Rioja areas.

My question is, are there any last minute things we should know about the drive/laws, interesting stops, any heads up with the rental, good apps for our phones, etc? I've been a little too relaxed about this and now it's happening sooner than I realized!

Also thinking, might be nice to rent the car on our 4th or 5th day in San Sebastian to explore the surrounding areas which are not easily explored by foot. Do you recommend any easily reached areas with our rental before heading to La Rioja? I appreciate any and all suggestions.

All this is happening in April. Thank you!
