For all things wine, Bordeaux is the place to go. This quaint southwestern French town is the home of oenology for those who love a bold, rich flavor. Perhaps even more striking is the city itself. The Pont de Pierre traverses the Garonne river with its majestic stone facade while the Sainte-Croix church commands the attention of pedestrians in the old city. Bordeaux is so much more than a stop-over; it's a melting pot of history, culture, and legend.
Deemed a UNESCO world heritage site in 2008, Bordeaux takes pride in its city center. With over 350 historic monuments, there is plenty to see and do throughout town. The Jardin Public offers green space in the heart of the city. The main wine museum and several smaller shops and boutiques are at the ready with wine tastings and classes. The Grand Theatre attracts an evening audience with regular ballets, operas, and concerts. Play in the miroir d'eau in front of the Place de la Bourse or stroll along the river banks. You are sure to enjoy the variety of activities that Bordeaux has on offer.
