Highly recommended
Bordeaux is an impressively dynamic city which continues its transformation that began with the regeneration of its quaysides and the classification of its delightful 18C historical centre as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2007. Stroll around the Les Chartrons district, with its many shops, as well as the Bassin à Flot and the Bassin de la Bastide on the other side of the Garonne, to discover a city that is chic and bohemian, yet peaceful and festive. Bordeaux fully merits its place on any list of must-see cities.

Bordeaux off the beaten track

A cinema in an old church, a warehouse converted into a cooperative garage, a concert-boat – Bordeaux is full of unusual venues that can easily slip by unnoticed should you be exploring its streets for the first time. To discover them, take the time to venture into the suburbs far from the touristy city centre.
