Bordeaux

— 6 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.
Get some cultural insight at Place de la Bourse and St. Andre Cathedral. Explore Bordeaux's surroundings by going to La Grande Dune du Pilat (in Pyla-sur-Mer), Fort Vauban (in Fouras) and La Rochelle (Aquarium La Rochelle & Musee Maritime de La Rochelle). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of La Cite du Vin, make a trip to The Water Mirror, learn about winemaking at Chateau Cantenac, and do sightseeing your way with DMjWineworks.
