Explore the ins and outs of beautiful Biarritz on this exquisite guided walking tour. One look at Biarritz and you’ll see why it’s one of the most fashionable and frequented resorts in the southwest of France. Your tour begins following in royal footsteps. Biarritz came to fame in the mid-19th century, when Empress Eugenie (wife of Napoleon III) fell in love with this part of the Basque Country and built a Palace on the beach - now the World Class Hotel du Palais. Eugenie invited foreign royalty to stay with their entourages and courtiers — Queen Victoria of Britain, and sundry Spanish, Swedish, Dutch, German, and Russian nobility. Learn all about the region’s architecture, history, and culture while soaking in this luxurious and absolutely exquisite seaside town. Enjoy free time to peruse the town at your leisure. At the end of the tour, pop into a salon for a sweet snack of Gateau Basque, the region’s prized dessert, and mingle amongst locals before unwinding on the scenic ride back to the ship.
