Bayonne or Biarritz

by virtual786

I am planning to be in the Bayonne-Biarritz area for 3 days in mid Septmeber.
I have to be at the airport at about 7:45 on Wednesday, 17 September for my flight.
I can stay in either town. Which is closer to the airport and easier to get to by bus?

Also, what time do the buses stop running between the 2 towns?

merci

There are buses from the airport to both Bayonne and Biarritz

Indeed it's the same bus, no. 6, which starts/ends at Quartier du Gaz (Biarritz) and then stops at Bayonne Gare. From this point of view, Bayonne is closer. It stops running in both directions around 20:00:

Line 1 also runs between the two mairies (Biarritz and Bayonne) and finishes around 21:00.

Travel Tips for Bayonne

hanging hams...

by Jeannette1

Bayonne hams (jambon de Bayonne) are very famous in France....similar to Italian proscuitto but with a more distinctive taste.

If you get a chance, go visit a shop where they dry hams the old-fashioned way (production artisanale as opposed to industrial).
The demonstrations are free and you get to taste some of the products. Of course, there is a shop and if you are like me, you won't be able to resist buying some food items.

Cloister of Sainte-Marie de Bayonne

by mikey_e

Given the sort of provincial feeling and reputation attached to Bayonne, it is a bit surprising that it hosts one of the largest cloister in all of France, a country known for its ability to build large and beautiful religious structures. The Cloisters attached to the Sainte-Marie de Bayonne Cathedral were built in the 1300s and are designed in a Gothic style, like the Cathedral. The courtyard in the central is incredibly large, and was used for various assemblies during the Middle Ages. There was once a northern gallery attached to the Cathedral, but it was taken down during the 19th century restaurations. On a year-round basis, the Cloisters exhibit a variety of Mediaeval funeral monuments and religious relics. In the summer, however, the shaded arcades and green courtyard host fairs and exhibitions. There was one of various handicrafts from the region while I was in Bayonne. Many of the items were the usual sort of fare you'd find at such events, but nevertheless it didn't detract from the beauty of the lavish porticoes and pillars all around the arcades.

L'Adour

by mikey_e

The Adour is the river that flows through Bayonne, cutting Grand Bayonne and Petit Bayonne from the quarter of Saint-Esprit and the train station. It is also a significant river with respect to linguistics and dialectology, as it represents a rough border between the Gascon-speaking areas of Aquitaine and the Basque Country, with Bayonne a mixed zone. This is a major river that flows from the Western Pyrenees, south-east of Tarbes, into the Atlantic Ocean. When I visited the city in August, the river seemed to be quite low, which is to be expected given the lack of rainfall and the general fall in rain and snow waters during the summer months. I don't believe that you can or would want to swim in the Adour, but there are boats all along it and you can undoubtedly go for a cruise. The main bridge crossing the river in the city centre is the Pont Saint-Esprit, which is remarkable for the various flags that line the bridge - both national and regional ones.

Bayonne ~ Ville du chocolat... sluuurp!

by aaaarrgh

Currently my favorite French city! For the whole of my stay here and didn't hear or speak a word of English (except in the Tourist Information Office).

Bayonne is also very proud of its Basque heritage, which I can appreciate, coming from the small nation of Wales. And did I mention the Chocolate Museum?!

Straddling two rivers, this is an incredibly picturesque city with some great shopping and plenty of culture.
