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 Tour Pey-Berland. Change things up with these side-trips from Bordeaux: Basilique Notre-Dame de Verdelais, Consolatrice des Affliges (in Verdelais), French Wine Adventures (in Saussignac) and Chateau Cluzeau (in Sigoules-et-Flaugeac). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Andre Cathedral, do a tasting at The Naked Vigneron, make a trip to La Grande Dune du Pilat, and test your problem-solving skills at The Hostel Escape game.

There's still lots to do: make a trip to Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations, steep yourself in history at Paroisse Cathédrale Saint Sauveur Aix-en-Provence, shop like a local with La Croisette, and head off the coast to Chateau d'If.
