With 350 classified buildings and nearly no stylistic changes in two centuries, Bordeaux undoubtedly deserves its UNESCO world heritage site status. Amongst the timeless architectural treasures you’ll find a buzzing culture that attracts the über cool too.
Renowned for its vineyards, wine certainly runs through the veins of the city and can be experienced in many ways, from fascinating tours to unique ‘vinotherapies’. Equally passionate about their gastronomy, sample unusual local delicacies, accompanied by the perfect Bordeaux wine. Or enjoy a day trip to picturesque St Emilion, with its thousand year old vineyards and delicious regional cuisine. Often referred to as ‘Little Paris’, the Bordelais rival the Parisians in the style stakes – whether shopping at the Galerie Borderlaise or sitting amongst the opulent 18th century facades of the Grand Theatre at a chic pavement café.
