Escorted Rail Tours to Bayonne
Explore the city's French, Spanish and Basque influences
Located close to the Spanish border, Bayonne is a city with many different cultural influences affecting it. The Rivers Adour and Nive run through Bayonne, effectively splitting it into two parts, linked by a series of five bridges. There is Grand Bayonne, which holds the bulk of the city's commercial and civic concerns, and Petit Bayonne, where the Basque culture is most evident, and where the bars and restaurants have flamboyant Spanish ambience and flavour.
Bayonne is truly a city of art and culture, where art lovers can see great masterpieces by painters such as Goya, Degas and Botticelli in the Musée Bonnat, and those whose interests lie in history will not be disappointed by the collections of Basque history on show in the Musée Basque.
