Guided tours

Bayonne and the chocolate (Half Day)

Discover a lively, cultural and gourmet city. Bayonne is a festive city, rich in colors and flavors as well as historically fascinating. 2000 years of history are superimposed within its walls and the life of its inhabitants has always been intimately linked to its river activity.

Supervised by the magnificent cathedral, registered as a Unesco World Heritage Site, the three main neighborhoods of Bayonne face each other. They are separated by the Nive and the Adour and the whole forms a charming harmony.

Bayonne is also known for being a gourmet city. It is the capital of chocolate and one of the gastronomic prides of the city. Since the end of the XVIIth century, Bayonne has acquired a reputation for this know-how which goes far beyond its walls.

An utter delight for eyes, ears and taste buds. 😉
