Wine tasting along the Garonne

Looking for a city trip near world-famous vineyards? Book a flight to Bordeaux and marvel at the opulence of the Grand Théâtre or shop in one of the many elegant shopping streets. The nickname of Bordeaux is ‘La Belle Endormie’ or Sleeping Beauty, but there is nothing sleepy about this city in the south of France.

Wine tasting

The Bordeaux region produces incredible wines. Spend a night in a castle at one of the many vineyards and stock up on your personal favourites. Or stay in the city and go wine-tasting in one of the many wine bars. A visit to the Musée du Vin et du Négoce will teach you everything about the wine-making process, and you can even take a crash course on how to make your own wine. Darwin is the city's hotspot: these former military barracks now house restaurants, shops, beer breweries and an impressive collection of street art. Bordeaux is the ideal destination for a weekend holiday, but also as the starting point for a longer vacation in France. Treat yourself: book a flight to Bordeaux now!

Artistic squares

Bordeaux boasts the largest square in France: Place des Quinconces. It often hosts festivals and there are a number of statues of famous writers. Art lovers will find plenty to explore in Bordeaux. Visit the Musée des Beaux-Arts for paintings by internationally-renowned masters or admire modern art in the CAPC Musée d’art contemporain. At the end of the day enjoy the culinary attractions of La Rue Gourmande, one of the best food streets in all of Bordeaux. Bon appétit!
