Bordeaux

— 7 nights

The Port of the Moon

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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Place de la Bourse and Tour Pey-Berland. Change things up with these side-trips from Bordeaux: La Rochelle (Aquarium La Rochelle & Towers of La Rochelle). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of La Cite du Vin, get engrossed in the history at Musee d'Aquitaine, get a taste of the local shopping with Promenade Sainte Catherine, and admire the masterpieces at CAPC Musee d'Art Contemporain.
