Bordeaux is an amazing city not to be missed!
When you attend the 5th European Days of Albinism, don’t miss a great opportunity to discover Bordeaux and its world famous wine region!
Blessed with a pleasant climate, amazing architecture on a human scale, many pedestrian streets and charming squares where cafe terraces seem to spring up like flowers, Bordeaux is renowned for its art de vivre, the art of enjoying the simple things in life. Take a stroll through the markets, stop for brunch in a cheerful café, doze for a while in a park or enjoy an aperitif as you watch the sunset, followed by a delicious dinner washed down with a good Bordeaux.
A walk along the river will put you in touch with Bordeaux’s 2,000 year-old history as a port city
Old Bordeaux is encompassed by the largest protected sector in France (150 hectares). History buffs will delight in the sculpted facades while bargain hunters will appreciate the flea market or a visit to bric-a-brac shops. Both early birds and night owls enjoy the Capucins market, while gourmets can enjoy a variety of cuisines in local bistros and restaurants.
Discover La Cité du Vin, the only cultural center in the world offering this approach to wine to a wide audience. It is a place accessible to as many people as possible and open to all: people with disabilities, families, international tourists. More details.
Located just across from a monument nearly 3 centuries old, it has become one of the city’s main attractions, the Miroir d’Eau is the most-photographed site in Bordeaux and is listed as a contemporary World Heritage Site by Unesco. The rhythmic changes in 2 cm of water on a gigantic slab of granite make this location truly magical.
