Bordeaux is one of France’s most beautiful cities. From being a town with narrow, winding alleys, Bordeaux was rebuilt in the 1700s with large, airy avenues. Stately houses and small private palaces were built along the quays, not least the magnificent Place de la Bourse. Also the beautiful opera house, Le Grand Théâtre, was built in the 1700s. In recent years, the cream coloured stone facades have been cleaned and renovated and the entire city has been shaped up. Not least, today there are several exciting wine bars, something of a rarity in the past.
On our Bordeaux tours, we have the city of Bordeaux as our base. From here we easily reach Médoc, Saint Emilion, Graves and Sauternes. Late afternoon we are back in Bordeaux and you are free to go out and find restaurants and bars, maybe in the vibrant “Old Town”. A walk along the river at dusk is not so bad either. Our spring wine tour to Bordeaux takes place in May.
