Situated on the Garonne River in Southwest France, Bordeaux is touted as the “City of Art and History”. So, as you can imagine, there are many wonderful sites to see here. There are a number of eighteenth century creations such as the ‘Place de la Bourse', ‘Allées de Tourny' and ‘Grand Théâtre'. Major monuments in Bordeaux include ‘Place Saint-Pierre', ‘Pey Berland Tower', and ‘Porte Cailhau'. The historic botanical garden ‘Jardin botanique de Bordeaux' is also worth a visit. And as you'll be in the heart of France's wine country, you're just a short distance from the lush vineyards, including the famous ones at ‘Médoc' and ‘Saint-Emilion'.
If you fancy shopping during your time here, head to ‘Rue Sainte-Catherine', it's longest European shopping street. Fine wine, of course, is a popular purchase in Bordeaux. Check out ‘La Vinothèque'. Red wine can be bought from ‘Château Lesparre' and Château les Bouzigues.
The local currency in Bordeaux is the Euro. Bordeaux is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +1).
