Bordeaux – what can we say! This grand city is amongst the most vibrant cities in South-western France. It lies on the Garonne River and the historic part of the city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as "an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble" of the 18th century.
Bordeaux is the world's major wine industry capital and is the home to the world's main wine fair, Vinexpo. It has on its doorstep the famed wine-growing regions of the Medoc and St-Émilion. Why not enjoy a day trip to enhance your wine experience or even take some time to visit La Cité du Vin or the Musée du Vin et du Négooe.
A visit to Bordeaux would not be complete without a visit to the Gothic Cathédrale Saint-Andre, the grand Place de la Bourse, centered on the Three Graces fountain, which overlooks the Miroir d’Eau reflecting pool. Why not take a River Garonne Cruise (with or without Lunch) or visit the 18th to 19th century mansions and notable art museums such as the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux.
For all you Oyster and Wine lovers a stop at the Bordeaux Marché des Capucins and for the shopping fashionistas, Bordeaux has the longest shopping street in Europe, the Rue Ste Catherine.
This is a city of so much enjoyment it should not be missed!
