Bordeaux | Voted best city to visit 2017 | Bordeaux vacations

BORDEAUX

The beautiful city of Bordeaux sits along the banks of the Garonne river, romantically named ‘port de la lune’, (port of the moon). The city of Bordeaux is dominated by its Unesco-listed 18th-century architecture and is enjoying a boom of fantastic restaurants, cafes, bars and boutique shops. A visit to Bordeaux in summer is an absolute must, with its fabulous climate, stunning architecture, and the ‘Bordeaux Wine Festival’ in June, showcasing all eight appellations of the region. The recent inauguration of the striking ‘La Cite du Vin’, an impressive swirling building of gold, aluminium and glass, offers any wine lover even more reason to visit the heart of one of the world’s most prestigious wine regions.
