I have only one day to spend in San Sebastian, how much time will you spend visiting Guggenheim Museum, and what else to do in the area ?
I have not been to the Guggenheim yet, so I cannot answer that part of your question, but I have been to San Sebastian.
However, if you do get a little time in
San Sebastian (Donostia), then head to the oldest part of the city to get a feel for it. There, you can usually find parking near the
Plaza de la Constitución where there are also a lot of restaurants. This is a great place to just walk. If you have time, walk along the water's edge on the beaches just past the
Real Club Náutico de San Sebastián. There's a pretty park along the promenade and beautiful beaches as well. We enjoyed visiting the
Catedral de San Sebastián which is an easy walk from the old quarter with a nice shopping district in between.
To eat, stay in the old quarter and stop in one of the pinxos bars. There you can try little breads topped with amazing flavor combinations or different flavors of croquetas. It's all delicious and the pinxos bars are generally fairly priced.
If you have extra time and enjoy a walk and a view, you can head to the little hill between the old town and the ocean and walk up to the old castle -
I only had a day there on my visit, but we did a lot of walking and enjoyed the sites and flavors very much. Enjoy!
