Highly acclaimed for having the most renowned wine, vibrant culture, and exquisite landmarks, Bordeaux is considered one of the most relaxed cities in the world. “Little Paris”, as it’s often referred to as, offers visitors an array of attractions, including many historical sites, countless venues for wine tastings, and a variety of “Bordelais” cuisine.
It’s no surprise that Brodeaux is a popular destination spot for tourists traveling to Europe. The food, wine, and culture found here is unlike any in the world.
Built on the banks of the Garrone River, Bordeaux is geographically France‘s largest city and one of the largest in Europe.
Whether it’s by plane, train, or automobile, Bordeaux is a flat city, which makes it easy to navigate through. A few of the stations include: Gare Saint-Jean, Place de la Victoire, Place Gambetta, and Quinconces.
If you’re looking to take a nice walk along the shores of the Garrone, the district of Les Quais has a stunning view of the landscape over the Aquitaine Bridge. Or if you want to explore some of Bordeaux’s historical monuments and have a beer at the same time, the district of La Victoire is where history meets student life.
Take an interest in Modern Art? Visit the Musee D’Art Contemporain, where exhibits are constantly changing and admission is cheap.
If wine is what your after, then head towards all the major vineyards of the region: Canon Fronsac, Saint Emilion, The Médoc, Graves and Sauternes. Bordeaux offers many tour operators who can organise your complete tour (including travel to and from Bordeaux and France) or they can arrange visits to wineries and château for you.
The cuisine, also, has much to offer. Try Dick Turpin’s if you’re looking for good music and amazing views, or Le Frog and Rosbif if want to catch football or rugby match. Other popular spots include Xing-Xing, Le Café Brun, and Le Break.
The city of Bordeaux is sure to impress even the pickiest of tourists.
