BAYONNE

Bayonne is a French town and region located in the south east of France. It is a relaxed and stress free city, full of Basque style houses, with colored beams and wooden shutters. The most picturesque area can be found on the banks of the river Nive, where the scenery looks like a Basque version of Amsterdam. It is also home to famous chocolate makers and Bayonne ham.
The walk along the banks of the river Nive, separating the two main quarters of the city, Great Bayonne and Little Bayonne, is pleasant and relaxing. Both banks of the river are full of bars and restaurants, making them the perfect place to stop for a drink and enjoy the best views in the city.
