Capital of the seafood-loving Aquitaine region, Bordeaux lies along the banks of the River Garonne, and is home to 362 magnificent monuments, several first class museums and a pedestrian shopping zone that’s over a kilometre long. This charming city has also been famous for fine wines since Roman times, and is still at the epicentre of today’s international wine trade. Get some inside information by visiting Bordeaux’s vintners where you can sample and buy sweet whites such as Chateau d’Yquem, and exclusive reds like Chateaux Margaux, and other top wines at hard-to-beat prices. But if you follow our tips and roam off the beaten track, you’ll discover there’s a lot more to buzzing Bordeaux than historical sights, great shopping and posh grape juice.

All towns assert themselves through their architecture Bordeaux is no exception. It is useful to delve into its street code system so as not to miss some of its unique aspects.
Bordeaux and the surrounding area boast delicious specialties that can be eaten for dessert or at any time during the day. They're perfect for me because they're fairly light. Well, perhaps not that light. But I like them, whereas I don't like cakes that are too sweet or packed with cream.
