San Sebastian is a quite walkable one. Once you are in the city centre yo can walk to the most alive neighborhoods of the city such as Gros, or La Parte Vieja. However if you want to know other neighborhoods it would be nice to roll up your pants a bit and take a bike. San Sebastian from a bike will surprise you.
San Sebastian is bike friendly and we love biking. We, locals, use them to go everywhere in the city. Indeed, it is full of bike lanes, we have so many of them that you can surround the city just riding through them. Wherever you want to go in the city a ‘bidegorri’ (as we know bike lanes in Basque Country) will take you there. What’s more, the drivers in San Sebastian are used to bike riders and they are always respectful and careful with them. Do I need more reasons to convince you?
San Sebastian from a bike: exploring alternative neighborhoods
As we said before, the city centre of San Sebastian is walkable. But there is more than the city centre. Other neighborhoods like El Antiguo, Aiete or Amara are a bit far away in walking distance. As you can imagine, these other neighborhoods are more residential and where most of the locals live along the year.
