Full description

Meet your guide by Place de la Liberté in central Bayonne and start with a beautiful panoramic view of the confluence of the Nive and Adour rivers. Then set off on your 2-hour walking tour of the city, where you will immerse yourself in the history of the medieval hearth of Bayonne.

Visit the defensive system of the fortress city, including hidden parts of the Roman ramparts, its feudal fortress: "Le Chateau Vieux", and the stunning Bayonne Cathedral (Unesco World Heritage site).

Your guide will point out examples of beautiful traditional half-timbered architecture and regale you with stories about past and present life at Bayonne. You will discover why Bayonne became the French capital of ham and chocolate. After the walking tour of Bayonne you will jump on the local zero emission tram bus to get to Biarritz. During a 25 minutes ride, you will learn about the current life of the BAB (Bayonne-Anglet-Biarritz) urban area. Once in Biarritz you will start with a short visit to the market before enjoying free time to taste the local delicacies on your own. After lunch, meet your guide back at the market and set off on a walking tour of Biarritz: "queen of beaches and beach of kings".

See the legendary Hotel du Palais, the elegant Art-Deco Casino Municipal, and the glamourous Grande Plage, as your guide entertains you with stories about the city’s glorious past and vibrant present. Take in the stunning coastline as you admire gorgeous Belle Époque and art deco buildings.
