Eat It: With more Michelin stars per capita than any other city, this Basque town is a must-visit for foodies. From pintxos, small-plate bar snacks, to expensive experimental cuisine, San Sebastian's dining scene runs the gamut. Peppers, olive oil and seafood often play starring roles. Head to Borda Berri, Gandarias, Casa Vergara, Haizea, Astelehena and La Cuchara de San Telmo for pintxos like crispy pig's ear, cod and bites of sirloin -- or blow your savings at Michelin-starred spots like Mugaritz, Arzak, Kokotxa and Zuberoa.

Experience It: San Sebastian Food will teach you how to cook pintxos, take you on a "Basque Food A to Z" experience that includes visiting a gastronomical society or acquaint you with Spanish wines at a tasting session.
