Bordeaux is an amazing city you should absolutely visit. In the 90’s, a lot of maintenance took place, the results of which you can now see all over. Visit the beautiful historical buildings and the city’s many squares, such as the Place de la Bourse, Place des Quicninces, and the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux. Those who wish to do some shopping will not be disappointed; Europe’s longest shopping street is located here (the Rue Sainte Catherine), though the numerous little sidestreets, which host the more special little shops are also worth seeing.
Order a good glass of wine in one of the many winebars and have a fine lunch in the nice restaurants that are scattered all across town. And of course, don’t forget to take a moment on the terraces of the city’s many little squares. Taste the ambiance and dynamism of the grand city of Bordeaux.
La Cité du vin
Since the spring of 2016, Bordeaux has been made brighter with the presence of a beautiful wine museum. It teaches you everything there is to know about wine, from the growing of the plant to the endresult in the bottle. Wines of every corner of the world are discussed, and the museum’s interactive system makes it possible for most visitors to listen to the information given in their own language.
During your visit, you will be invited to smell, to touch, and of course to taste. It is an experience in its own right, which is why we recommend you take a full day for the visit, so that you can be sure not to miss all there is to see.
You can also lunch in the museum, with a good glass of wine of course! More information on their website.
Though a city like Bordeaux is likely to host at least one market everyday, I personally wouldn’t visit it for this. During high season however, various festivities are organised, that are definitely worth visiting. Check bordeaux.fr for details.
