Good to know

Best time to visit
Any time is a good time to come here, but it's May to July for the best weather. This is also the peak season, so expect crowds. In spring and autumn, the temperatures are cooler, so just be prepared for that. Perhaps pack a jumper!
Getting around
There is a well-connected local bus service D-Bus, which will take you to all the key tourist points around the city. They run between the hours of 7.30am and 10.30pm, so you'll have to catch the night bus if you stay out longer. You can, of course, book a taxi or hire a car. Walking is also a great way to explore the city.
Stay Safe
Like most places around Spain, San Sebastian has a low crime rate. However, you should still be aware of your surroundings and always keep your belongings safe.
