San Sebastian, Spain - September 19-25, 2024

Pintxos, Movies and Guggenheim Bilbao: action packed and glorious

Pintxos, Movies and Guggenheim Bilbao: action packed and glorious

San Sebastian in September sweeps us off our feet – wonderful Basque cuisine, the spectacular beach, mild evening strolls along long, lush boulevards, the glittery and exciting film festival venues, a day trip to nearby Bilbao to visit the Guggenheim Museum, and our stay at a contemporary and beautiful boutique hotel. 

Layer on the international film festival – a cross between The Cannes Film Festival and Venice in its ability to attract exciting new international films and glamorous stars set in a fabulous resort town.

Sightseeing … We arrange a pintxo crawl with culinary expert Eskerne Falcon, that includes a progressive lunch, along with a visit to the Guggenheim Museum in neighboring Blibao. 

Festival Accreditation … We will arrange for tickets to the opening night gala and festival accreditation to attend daily screenings. 

Hotel Zenit Convento San Martin… A boutique hotel, a short and pleasant walk to the principal screening venues.

Per Person Double Occupancy: $4,280
Per Person Single Occupancy: $5,179
