Soak up culture in Bordeaux

If you want to dive deeper into history, visit one of the numerous museums in Bordeaux. At Musée d'Aquitaine, you can explore the region’s history and see objects from Roman times. If you love art, you should visit the CAPC museum. You’ll also enjoy Palais Gallien. This amphitheatre is Bordeaux’s oldest relic from the past where gladiators used to battle with wild animals. This impressive structure is dilapidated but the rounded arches give a good impression of the ancient Roman architecture.

The very best wine

Your city break to Bordeaux will not be complete if you do not sample the local wines. It’s not a problem if you’re a beginner, you can go to a wine tasting! Not only will you get to try a variety of wines, but you’ll also learn to recognise different flavours and analyse colours. It means you’ll know exactly which wines go best with which dishes. Alternatively, why not spend a day picking grapes with a winegrower? This is an unforgettable experience and also very pleasurable. Once you’ve picked some grapes, you’ll be given full information about how to make wine and naturally you’ll be able to sample a few wines too! If you’re still not tired of your favourite drink, round off the day in a wine barrel. Near to the vineyards of Saint Emilion, you can find two huge wine casks which are normally used as fermentation barrels. These original wine casks have been transformed into a guesthouse and provide a unique experience.
