Beautiful city open on the river, and the world, Bordeaux which was for a long time the first port of France, is the heart of the Bordeaux vineyard. The old town is dotted with carved stones buildings, in the great 18th century style. But there are also narrow medieval streets, darker and more popular areas, changing as the whole city is. Classified as UNESCO World Heritage, Lonely Planet elected Bordeaux as the city to visit in 2017 ... So don't wait, and go run it.*Alternative route: the tour can be shorten, without the northern part (so without the Cité du Vin and Submarine base)
