Top City to Visit 2017

Bordeaux has topped the best city to visit in 2017, and I couldn’t agree more! What a remarkable introduction to France and a simply gorgeous city and more than one way. 

On Friday, we planned to get up early to explore all that Bordeaux had to offer, but an alarm malfunction, and a late sleep in, set our day off later than planned. We grabbed a quick espresso and pain de chocolate, and began our on foot journey to visit all the sites that made Bordeaux a UNESCO heritage site. We visited thirteen different sites like cathedrals, Grosse Cloche, and Tour Pey Berland, just to name a few. 


After site seeing, we hopped on the tram and headed to La Cité du Vin, which is a wine museum. Upon checkin, you’re given a headset in your language and an iPhone looking device that guides you through the museum, giving you the history, culture, facts, and interactive exhibits to engage the senses. The session concludes with your choice of a glass of wine. 


Our evening concluded with a delicious local dinner, strolling the streets, and getting packed for our next stop: Nice.
