Soak in the culture of Biarritz - Blog 2  26/02/2014

As well as being home to an impressive array of beaches that attract adrenaline-seeking holidaymakers from across Europe, the French city of Biarritz is also home to a vast amount of history and culture that you must take the time to enjoy.And due to its cosmopolitan past, the city is also keen to embrace new styles and influences. This means that when you visit the city, you will come across an eclectic mix of ideas.Here, we're going to provide a brief guide to some of the cultural attractions of the city…Chief among these, perhaps, is the Musée Historique de Biarritz, which offers a great insight into the cultural and social evolution of the city, which is a brilliant place to visit if you've never been before.It is housed in a former Anglican church and is well worth seeing.Another of the city's cultural landmarks is the iconic lighthouse, which has 248 steps to the top and offers some amazing views across the surrounding area.No visit to Biarritz is complete without taking in the splendor of the lighthouse.For something slightly different, however, you may wish to indulge in a bit of food tasting. And what food is more pleasurable than chocolate?In order to enjoy this, you should take a trip to Planète Musée du chocolat.The fun doesn’t end there, however. One of the top attractions in the city is the recently renovatedMusée de la Mer Aquarium, which is actually one of the biggest aquariums in France and something that you cannot spurn the opportunity to see.Indeed, there's loads more to see in the city besides this and so you cannot pass up the chance to indulge in a bit of local culture.Need somewhere to stay in Biarritz? Camping Le Vieux Port with Carisma Holidays could be the solution to your problem.
