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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Place de la Bourse and French Wine Adventures. Get out of town with these interesting Bordeaux side-trips: Chateau La Croizille (in Saint-Laurent-des-Combes), Saint-Emilion (Monolithic Church of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Cantenac, &more) and Chateau de Panisseau (in Thenac). There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of La Cite du Vin, don't miss a visit to Pont de Pierre, wander the streets of Port of the Moon, and examine the collection at Association Hermione-La Fayette.
