With a long history of producing regional wines since the Romans brought grapevines here during the first century, so many people consider Bordeaux to be the wine capital of the world.
Explore hidden gems such as Room Escape Games and La ville d'Hiver. Change things up with these side-trips from Bordeaux: Cap-Ferret (Notre Dame des Flots, Le Phare du Cap Ferret, & more), Dune du Pilat (in La Teste-de-Buch) and Arcachon (Basilique Notre-Dame, Jetée Thiers, & more). Dedicate the 18th (Thu) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Andre Cathedral (Cathedrale Saint-Andre), admire the natural beauty at Jardin Public, ponder the design of Monument aux Girondins, and admire the striking features of Cathedrale St-Front.
