Bayonne, ferias and gastronomy, sun and ocean !

Bayonne is a city located in the southwest of France, in the Aquitaine region. It is close to the spanish border and the Atlantic Ocean. This city is the economic capital of the french Basque country.

About France

Bayonne is a fortified city with many narrow streets and typical houses.

The Saint Mary’s cathedral is a gothic style building that is listed to the UNESCO world heritage. The cloister next to the cathedral also deserves the detour. Bayonne also proposes many museums such as the chocolate workshop or the Bonnat museum. If you want to know more about the region’s history, chose the Basque museum with its very rich ethnographic collections.

Bayonne is also famous for its ferias, which are the 5th biggest meeting in the world ! This event lasts 5 days and celebrates bullfightings. The Basque coast also offers wonderful beaches for your summer holidays !

Is the train from bordeaux to bayonne a scenic ride - as opposed to a train ride through lots of tunnels? We want to travel from Bordeaux to Bayonne and see the beautiful scenery but would prefer not to drive. We love train travel but if the trip is not a scenic one then I don't want to do it.

    Better than flying but more $  |
    "Love the convenience of departing from the middle of a major city. And normally don't mind paying more than flying for this reason, given this last trip I was charged extra for having a surfboard (something airline I returned with didn't do). Anyway with extra fees it end up costing more than double the price of a cheap flight which I'll probably do in future. "

    Journey to lourdes |
    "The trip itself was comfortable. The staff member ( lady) who helped us at the Montparnasse ticket station attended to our needs with utmost detail and patience when we needed to change a schedule on the return trip and booking for a car rental. The trip was delYed but they totally made up for the delay and made sure we were able to catch the connecting train to Lourdes on time. The only problem was there were no signages on the tracks to guide the passengers. A lot of confusion took place transferring from 1 coach to the other bearing the same coach and seat no. Conductors helped but some were confused too. "

    Paris to Bayonnne |
    "For non-frequent users of the trains it is slightly confusing finding the correct coach number and seat number. It would be great if there could be an indication of the coach number from afar as sometimes they don't seem to be in chronological order. Otherwise the service is very efficient and an excellent option for traveling between cities. "
