Bayonne has much to offer those keen to hang around here a little longer. Musee Bonnat, Bayonne Citadel and Bayonne Arena are just some of the points of interest sure to delight.
Learn something new by visiting Aquitaine's thought-provoking art museums, nature museums and art galleries. If you're on the lookout for activities that won't wreak havoc on the budget, set aside some time to explore Aquitaine's many outdoor cultural attractions such as open-air markets.
No holiday is really complete without a good dose of rest and relaxation. Beach combing is one of the ways they relax here. In this region and cycling is another. Take your own gear or rent it on the spot, and discover the region's water activities. Rafting is a popular activity. Another one is fishing.
At the conclusion of your break, pack up your gear and wish France a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
