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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ecluses de Tuilieres (in Mouleydier), Porte de Luzier (in Beaumont-du-Perigord) and Le Domaine de Barbe (in Badefols-sur-Dordogne). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Place de la Bourse, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Andre Cathedral, learn about winemaking at Chateau Lestevenie, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.
