A network of railway lines converges in Bilbao. This, together with its excellent motorways and dual carriageways, makes land transport a good option. 

By road:

France:  Bilbao is 8 hours from Paris by car, with connections to other important cities along the route: the nearby Donostia-San Sebastian (100km.), Bayonne (150km.), Biarritz (150km.), Pau, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Limoges, Tours, etc.

Madrid and central Spain:  Madrid is a 4 hour drive away, passing by the nearby Vitoria-Gasteiz (60km.) and Burgos (150km.). The capital of Spain connects Bilbao with the Castillian Plateau, a region where the cities of Valladolid, Segovia, Salamanca and Toledo are located.

Barcelona and the Mediterranean:  It takes a 6 hour journey to travel to Barcelona, along a route that passes by Logroño (130km.) and Zaragoza or alternatively Pamplona (150km.). Barcelona opens up Bilbao to the Mediterranean axis, both in Spain (Valencia, Mallorca and Ibiza, Costa Brava, Costa del Sol) and in France (Montpellier, French Riviera, etc.). 

By sea:

The Port of Bilbao, one of the most important transport and logistics centres on the Atlantic Arc, makes the Bay of Biscay a real highway to the city through a regular ferry line from England, with the vessel Cap Finistère. This Brittany Ferries shipping company ferry moors 20 minutes from the city centre, at the dock in Zierbena (quay A3). Twice a week it transports people and vehicles to and from the city of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom. The crossing takes 24 hours, or 32 if you choose the option with a stopover in the French port of Roscoff.
