Bordeaux, city of art and history, is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its architecture. It is considered as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Many visits are suggested: daily tours of the city throughout the year, but also unusual, gourmet or economic visits.
Start with a visit of the most famous monuments, including the Gallien Palace; last vestige of the Gallo-Roman era, Saint-André's Cathedral, the Pey Berland Tower, the Cailhau Gate or the Great Bell; second remaining gate of the ancient medieval walls.
A walk will allow you to truly appreciate the beauty and rhythm of the city. We recommend the Saint Pierre district, the Tourny paths, the Bourse square with its water mirror and the quays of the left bank that are often lively thanks to different events.
End the walk on a high note with a wine tasting at the CIVB (Interprofessional Council of Wine), near the Chartons quay.
For culture and art lovers, the choice of museums is very large: Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Aquitaine, Museum of Decorative Arts, Jean Moulin Centre, Museum of Fine Arts, National Museum of Customs, Museum of Wine and Trade or Museum of Natural History.
Bordeaux is a also paradise for shopping lovers, where all major luxury brands are present as well as many shops of craftspeople and designers that challenge their creativity to seduce you. Art and antique galleries, delicatessens, wine merchants and wellness institutes are also waiting for you for a moment of relaxation between two shops!
