When you think of the word ‘Bordeaux’ it’s difficult not to also hear the words ‘fine’ and ‘wine’ and there’s a good reason for this. Nestled in the sun-drenched banks of the river Garonne, Bordeaux is a city built on a combination of fine dining and even finer wines. Rich vineyards spread as far as the eye can see in the surrounding countryside, creating a rustic image that wouldn’t be out of place a couple of centuries back.
But that isn’t the real Bordeaux.
The real Bordeaux is a bustling, beating urban hub of culture and the arts where both rockers and royalty meet to indulge in the best of everything. Throughout the city, you’ll find just as many modern nightclubs and bars as you will ancient wine cellars, and for every historical landmark that defines Bordeaux spectacular skyline, there are two incredible pieces of modern art or architecture. With so much to offer, it’s easy to see why people flock to the city every year.
