But be forewarned, this map isn't really the kind of map you want to carry around with you. Because it is fairly stiff (it is very well made), it is too big for your pocket. Plus, you likely won't be driving IN Donostia because it is much easier to get around on foot or by bike.
For a better walking/biking map, go to the tourismo office, which is located on the main boulevard that runs along the southern edge of the Old Town. The address is Del Boulevard Aldapa, 8, 20003 San Sebastian, and their website is [...] I would also highly recommend buying their bicycle card, even if you are only there for a day. If you are from the US, you will be amazed at their system. We rode their bikes everywhere because the city is so bike friendly.
Yes, the names are in Basque, where as many of the streets in Donostia have both Basque and Spanish signage, but that is part of what I love about this map. You would do yourself a favor to learn at least a few words in Basque before traveling to Donostia. The Basque love everyone (yes, even tourists) and are elated when we try to learn their language, which is one of the hardest in the world to learn. But with just a handful of Basque words under my belt, the service we received was incredible. Bartenders were reaching over people to help me simply because I could say 'hello', order our drinks, and say 'thank you' in Basque. They would even bring over other bartenders and point out to their regular customers that I was an American that knew some Basque. The locals would want to come over and take pictures with me, although that was also because I wear a cowboy hat. (Yes, locals are mixed in with tourists in all parts of Donostia, which is part of its charm.)
...a quick tutorial:
Hello - kaiko (pronounced - "cash-o")
Good bye - egur (ah-gur ...the "g" is like "golf" not "gem")
Excuse me - barkatu (bark-ah-two)
Please - mesedez (mesh-eh-dess)
Thank you - eskerrik asko (esh-car-ee-kosh-coe)
I don't know - ez dakit (es-da-keet)
Only a little bit - pixka bat bakarrik (pix-ca-bot bock-ah-rick)
One - bat (bot...as in "robot")
Two - bi (bee)
Three - hiru (ear-ooo)
Beer - garagardoa (gar-ah-gar-dua) - although there is nothing wrong with mixing Spanish and Basque. Garagardoa was hard to say and to remember so we simply order "bat cerveza" and they still liked it.
Txakoli - "Shock-o-lee" - You will want to know this word because you will be drinking a lot of Txakoli while in Donostia and the Basque Country. It is their local drink, which is kind of like a lightly sparkling cider/wine...and don't worry if they correct your pronunciation - everyone seems to say txakoli differently and some even refer it as txakolina.
I don't understand - Ez dut ulertzen (Es-doot-oolertzen)
Train station - tren geltokia (the 'g' is like 'golf' not 'gel') - also, be forewarned that there are two train stations in Donostia - one is for travel inside Spain; the other gets you to France. Make sure you know which one you are looking for, and show up early enough to buy your ticket, which can take some time because we found that most of the time the ticket agents spoke very little English.
A word of warning about using Basque. First, the language was outlawed by Franco up until his death in the 1970s so usually only the very young and the very old speak it beyond simple greetings...although it is coming back strongly. But they appreciate when foreigners try to learn Basque because they know it is a very hard language. Second, they are going to ask you to repeat yourself because NOBODY tries to learn Basque so they are not going to believe their ears the first time you say something. Just about every time I ordered "Bat cerveza, bi txakoli (one beer, two txakoli) they looked at me funny and I had to say it again because they weren't expecting Basque from a guy in a cowboy hat, and thought they had heard me wrong. Third, if they speak Basque fluently, they will start to rattle off whole sentences in Basque. Just be humble (don't be afraid to laugh at yourself), and explain that you don't understand and that you only speak a little Basque. They will have a good laugh with you and will love you for trying. Seriously, the Basque are a very friendly people so as long as they see that you are embracing their culture, they will love you for it.
So, back to the map...
Donostia is a great city to visit (we plan on retiring there) but it has lots of nooks and crannies...lots of out of the way places that you might miss if you don't have a good map to help you with your planning. Although I don't recommend this map as a walking map, I highly recommend it for your planning stages, as well as to have in your hotel as a reference once you are there.
