Overview

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!

How any buses each day run from bayonne to st jean pied de port? I am travelling from Paris by TGV. I want to get to St Jean Pied De Port. Is there a train connection, or only bus? How often do the trains and the bus connect? Is there much delay?

    Luggage handling on TVG |
    "Unfortunately the railway station in Bayonne does not have a lift which is very inconvenient when getting to the TVG platform. Hauling suitcases down and up stairs is a major problem and you need to be fit. "

    "Very impressed with the ease of booking. One small problem was the schedule showed we'd have to change trains at Bayonne where in fact the train went to Hendaye. Had to get more tickets. Otherwise very happy. "

    Wheelchair travel |
    "We traveled with our 10 year old son who is in a wheelchair. While the trip was very comfortable when on board, and the food was generally well priced and available most of the trip, there was no assistance available to help us negotiate stairs/baggage/wheelchair needs. We found that we had to specifically ask for support, even though it was obvious we needed some assistance. May I suggest a dedicated carriage with an extendable ramp and staff trained and willing to support wheelchair passengers? Thank you. "

    Forget the large suitcases |
    "It's important to point out that travelling on French railways can be a great way to get around but also frustrating because of having to carry your suitcases up and down staircases to get to the platform Also the custom of not posting which platform your train is leaving from until a few minutes before boarding time often means running to catch the train With long trains that are stopping for only a couple of minutes it is important to check the screens on the departure platform to see the composition of the trains otherwise you may find yourself on the correct platform but a very long way from your designated carriage. Also there never seems to be enough storage for luggage so you really need to think small in order to heave your case up onto the overhead rack. "
