Setting sail from Bordeaux

Bordeaux sits at the centre of the world's most famous wine region, and is home to a beguiling blend of beautiful buildings, sophisticated gastronomy and high culture. What's more, the city has been transformed over the last few years: the grandiose 18th century facades have been scrubbed clean, a shiny new public transport system has been installed, and a wonderful new promenade has been created alongside the river Garonne. We think Bordeaux is a marvellous place to spend some time, whether it's a day sampling wines, an evening at the opera or a night on the tiles.

Our tip

Bordeaux is ringed by vineyards and châteaux, and a wine tasting tour is an absolute must. Saint-Emilion, Pauillac, Médoc, Sauternes, Pomerol… You really are spoilt for choice!

Arriving in Bordeaux

Don't miss

You have to see the Water Mirror, which you will find by the Place de la Bourse. Who would have thought that two centimetres of water on a huge granite slab could create such an amazing effect?
