On the Garonne River in the Aquitaine region, Bordeaux offers further picturesque scenery to its already delightful city centre. The historic part of the city is an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble of the 18th century and has subsequently been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Wine lovers will find their calling here, as Bordeaux can lay claim to being the world’s wine capital. With nearly 300,000 acres of vineyards, nearly 60 appellations, 10,000 wine producing Chateaux and 13,000 grape growers, Bordeaux creates an annual production of 960 million bottles of wine – varying from everyday wines to the world’s most expensive bottles. Described as the city of Art & History, Bordeaux is home to one of Europe’s largest 18th century architectural urban areas - with the city’s Grand Théâtre being one of its major attractions.
