Travel Tips for visiting Bordeaux

A city in the heart of French culture

The capital of Aquitaine, Bordeaux is the second most important city in France for its UNESCO World Heritage monuments. It is a beautiful city in southwest France, but it is not only worth visiting for its history. It is also the home of the Bordeaux wines, reputed to be the best in the world. To top it all off, its proximity to the Atlantic coast gives it many other attractions. The Dune du Pyla is nearby, ready to be climbed or flown over. But in the meantime, you should visit the urban districts that are being completely restructured, enjoy the terraces of old Bordeaux, taste the wines of Saint-Émilion or Sauternes, savor the nighttime atmosphere of the docks...
