API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of their host city, country, and surrounding region. The following is a listing of all excursions for API Bilbao programs. All excursions are subject to change.

  • Gernika

    Gernika is home to the ‘Tree of Gernika,’ a large oak tree that became symbolic of the traditional rights of the Basque people. In 1937, the Nazis completely destroyed the town of Gernika during the Spanish Civil War. Picasso’s famous painting that has become an international symbol against war in general is named ‘Guernica’ after the atrocities that occurred here. In 1987 (50 years after the bombings) Gernika became known as a symbol of peace. On the way to Gernika lies San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, a tiny island connected to the mainland by a man made bridge. On top of the island there is a hermitage that dates from the 10th century.

  • Madrid

    Spain’s capital blends the modern with an important cultural and artistic heritage. Three of the most important art galleries in the world (the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museums) are all located in the center of Madrid. All this, combined with the momentum of a society that is dynamic, liberal and welcoming, has turned this metropolis into one of the western world’s great capitals.

  • Winery Tour

    One of Spain’s truly legendary winemaking regions, the region of La Rioja in central-North of Spain is home to some of the world’s best and most exclusive red wines. Laguardia, capital of the Alava region in the Basque country, is a gateway for experiencing the Rioja wine region and it is a good example of a walled village that has not changed much since the 13th century. During the Middle Ages, residents dug deep into the rock below their homes (and sometimes the home of their neighbor) to create places for food storage and refuge during the siege.When wine production became prominent in the region, the underground passages were found to be ideal for the fermenting of wine. The winery Ysios joins tradition with the modernity of facilities designed by Santiago Calatrava and inaugurated in 2001.

  • San Sebastián

    San Sebastián was founded in 1180 and is one of the Basque country’s most beautiful towns. It has been an important vacation spot since the late 1800s after being adopted as the summer home for Madrid’s royalty.

  • Southern France

    Biarritz is in the south-western corner of France, close to the border with Spain. The town is a lively one and a pleasure to explore. It contains very impressive grand 19th-century houses with wrought iron balconies and other decoration, with a faded elegance that adds to its charm. Biarritz has a high reputation as a surfing capital of Europe due to its fine sandy beach in the center of town.

  • Toledo

    Toledo, located south of Madrid, was declared ‘City of Mankind’s Heritage’ by UNESCO in 1986. It was capital of Spain from mid-6th to the mid-16th centuries, as evidenced by its impressive medieval architecture. Known as the “City of the Three Cultures,” it served as a hub for Jews, Moors and Christians and has today become a symbol of religious tolerance. Walking through Toledo is like taking a magic journey into the past.

  • London

    London is the largest city in Western Europe, home of the Kings and Queens of England since time immemorial. The Tower of London, with its Beefeaters and grisly past, is a prominent landmark and is the place where the Tudor King Henry VIII had two of his queens beheaded! It is situated next to the famous Tower Bridge, which spans the River Thames. Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the houses of Parliament and Big Ben are all equally famous historical buildings, of which there is no shortage in London. They are presided over by Buckingham Palace, where the current Queen lives, and overlooked by the London Eye. London is a magical city with plenty to offer any visitor.

  • Gernika

    Gernika is home to the ‘Tree of Gernika,’ a large oak tree that became symbolic of the traditional rights of the Basque people. In 1937, the Nazis completely destroyed the town of Gernika during the Spanish Civil War.

Walking through Toledo is like taking a magic journey into the past.

  • Santander

    Santander is an elegant city that extends over a wide bay with views of the Cantabrian Sea. Its historic quarter is situated against an incredible natural backdrop of sea and mountains.

  • Paris

    One of the most intriguing cities in the world, Paris is brimming with amazing museums, architecture, fashion, and beauty. Innumerable monuments built to reflect the glory of France and its rulers stand testament to the city’s rich history.

  • Lisbon

    Lisbon is a European city like no other. It boasts as grand a cultural and historical heritage as many other European cities but also has an earthier side that sets it apart. An impressive Gothic cathedral, the Hieronymites Monastery, St. George’s Castle and Torre de Belém are all part of the colorful cityscape. Another side of Lisbon is discovered wandering around the narrow lanes of Alfama, Rossio and Barrio Alto Quarters, and taking in the sounds and rhythm of the city. One experiences a step back in time through visits to the cultural sites in Lisbon, while also gaining an impression of the differences between Portugal and Spain.

API students in Bilbao live with host families with wireless internet included.

Students who live with families generally have their own room, but may share a double room with a fellow API student, and are provided with three meals per day and laundry service. Families provide an amazing opportunity to experience Spanish culture firsthand. Host families serve as a unique introduction into Spanish culture and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee.

***The apartment option can only be offered if requested by a minimum of 3 students of the same gender. When there is insufficient interest in this housing option, students are placed with host families.***

Student apartments require more independence and provide less cultural interaction with Spaniards, although other apartments in the building are often rented or owned by Spanish families. Each apartment can generally accommodate 3-4 people. The majority of the rooms in student apartments are double rooms. However, based on availability, some students may be assigned to a single room on a first-come, first served basis. Students are responsible for buying and preparing all of their own meals, and kitchens are furnished with the necessary cookware to do so. Sheets and blankets are also provided.

Note: Housing between the fall and spring semesters is not included.
