Artean Pass

The Artean Pass is a joint ticket for the Museo Guggenheim Bilbao and the Museo de Bellas Artes, which, at €16 for adults, offers significant savings. It’s available from either museum.

Deusto

Over the river from the Museo Guggenheim Bilbao, and accessible via the Pedro Arrupe footbridge, the Universidad de Deusto dominates the northern riverfront. This landmark building, initially one of Bilbao’s largest, was designed by architect Francisco de Cubas in 1886 to house the Jesuit Deusto university. To the southwest of the university, Deusto is a largely residential district. But if you’re in the area and fancy a bite, Deustoarrak is one of a number of eateries on the neighbourhood’s central strip, Avenida Madariaga.
