Bordeaux is an international tourist destination for its exceptional architectural and cultural heritage, with over 400 historic monuments, making it, after Paris, the city with the most listed monuments in France. Crossed by the Garonne and close to the Côte d’Argent, the city, which had its heyday in the Age of Enlightenment, boasts tall, golden facades, prestigious cobbled courtyards and monumental squares.

In 2007, Bordeaux became the world’s largest protected city with its inclusion on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, for its classical and neo-classical architectural unity since the early 18th century.

The quays and banks of the Garonne were redeveloped in the early 2000s, allowing visitors to stroll along both banks of the river and discover Bordeaux’s ancient monuments, from the Bourse Maritime to the Pont de Pierre, dating from the Napoleonic era, via the Porte de Bourgogne and ending at the Basilique Saint-Michel. The wine capital of the world, with its prestigious châteaux and vineyards in the Bordeaux region, the city is also considered a mecca for French gastronomy, with hundreds of restaurants, including several Michelin-starred establishments.

Bordeaux’s cultural life is also very important, attracting an ever-growing number of lovers of this gentle way of life, oriented towards an epicurean and joyful lifestyle. The Fête du Vin on the quays and Place des Quinconces, alternating every other year with the Fête du fleuve, is a not-to-be-missed event in the South-West, hosting numerous ships, world music concerts and the traditional fireworks display over the river.
