Bayonne Train Station

Bayonne is located in the southwest of France on the Atlantic coast in the
Pyrénées-Atlantiques region.
Together with nearby cities (Anglet and Biarritz) it counts 150, 000 inhabitants
 in its urban area. Bayonne is part of the French Basque Country.
Its twin towns are:
• Pamplona, Navarra, Spain
• Daytona Beach, FL, USA
• Bayonne, NJ, USA
• Kutaisi, Georgia

    The Nive river divides Bayonne into the Grand Bayonne and the Petit Bayonne, with five bridges
    between the two. Both parts are still backed by Vauban's walls (XVIIth century). Indeed the Nive river
    is banked by many restaurants and parks, plus the covered market on its quays. The houses lining the
    Nive river are picturesque examples of the Basque architecture, with half-timbering and shutters in the
    national colors of red and green. The much wider Adour river is on the north side of town. The Pont
    St-Esprit connects the Petit Bayonne with the Quartier St-Esprit across the Adour river, where the
    massive Citadelle and the railway station are located.

    The fêtes de Bayonne are a series of festivals in the Basque town, starting on the first Wednesday of
    August. These festivals draw from 1.3 to 1.5 million visitors and include musical performances,
    concerts and other entertainments; they are some of the largest ones in France.                  22
The IUT of Bayonne is strongly committed to making foreign students’ stay as much
enjoyable as possible.
In short, the university of Bayonne is a big family where foreign students are never
alone and where their adjustment is as important as the one of any French student.
