Things to do in Bordeaux
A city of art and history, Bordeaux is the ideal destination for tourists and business travellers. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is full of iconic places to visit like the neoclassical Grand Théâtre and the 18th-century Palais de la Bourse.
While retaining its classic feel, the city is also home to modern elements that make it unique. Alongside museums and archaeological sites, you can see the work of the many artists who are contributing to the city’s ongoing evolution.
Bordeaux perfectly embodies the French art of living, with its gourmet restaurants taking foodies on a culinary journey. Try Aquitaine foods like Périgord truffles, Landes white asparagus and canelé pastries – a Bordeaux speciality!
Wine lovers will also enjoy familiarising themselves with the special wines that have made the region famous worldwide. The Cité du Vin is the perfect place to learn about wine history and production secrets before trying some great vintages from the region.
During a long stay in Bordeaux, get away from it all with a trip to the Atlantic Ocean just an hour’s drive from the city. Arcachon Bay will amaze you with iconic locations like Cap Ferret and the Dune of Pilat. You can also try the oysters for which the Bay is known.
