Bordeaux-Merignac Airport (BOD)

Set along the sleepy Garonne River in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is a UNESCO-listed, glamorous port city with pedestrianized boulevards, restored neoclassical architecture and chic shops, restaurants and bars. The Gironde region is home to prestigious chateaus that produce France’s most famous wines.

Experience All Things French

From wine tasting and food markets to vineyard chateaus and a decanter-shaped museum, this revitalized city is a delightful destination. Explore Bordeaux’s city center, the Saint-Michel district, home to one of the tallest medieval stone towers in France. Sample creative cuisine like tomato ice cream. Shop for art, gourmet food or designer labels in the Golden Triangle area that is home to trendy shops and wine stores.

Top sites to see include the Cite du Vin ― an interactive wine museum built in the shape of a giant swirling glass of wine, the Miroir d'Eau fountain with the world’s largest reflecting pool and the Musee d'Aquitaine ― a well-curated history and art museum. If you’re a night owl, head for the bars and clubs open until the early morning hours around the Quai de Paludate district. Situated on the west bank of the Garonne River, this three-block strip of pubs and dance venues is the place to be on weekends.
