Below you will find interesting tips to park at the Plaza de toros Illumbe - Donostia Arena 2016.
The bullring has its own parking lot right in front of the arena, but since this is the first place where visitors look for parking, there is a risk that you will not find a free space. Therefore, we recommend that you always choose parking lots where you can reserve your parking space. So if you are arriving by car, we recommend you do so with Parkimeter, where you can not only see the options that suit you best, but also book online. See the options here
If you need more parking options, you can opt for the public parking lots, some of which are metered and some of which are free. To make your visit as stress-free as possible, we advise you to secure your spot before your visit, because if you do it on the same day, you could lose a lot of time looking for parking.
If you are not lucky enough to find a public or private parking lot, you have the option to park on the street, but it is important that you follow the parking restrictions in San Sebastian.
If you do not arrive by car or parked relatively far from the venue, you can also reach Donostia Arena directly by bus or train. These are the lines and routes that stop nearby: Bus routes: 17 and 28 Train connection: E2
