Only those who have never been to Bordeaux can think that all they have to offer is exclusively linked to wine edited in: 2019-10-28T10: 19: 38 01:00 by SiViaggia 7 October 2019 Share on Facebook Twitter Whatsapp Pinterest
In addition to wine there is much more. Only those who have never been to Bordeaux (or have never been interested in this city with a history spanning more than a thousand years) can think that everything they have to offer is linked exclusively to the excellent (and namesake) wine.
It is very close to Italy because it can be reached with low cost flights from our main airports. Furthermore, it is much cheaper than Paris and is therefore an excellent alternative for those looking for a weekend idea.
Within this perimeter there are 347 buildings, many of which have a very high historical, architectural and artistic value. This is joined by long sandy beaches directly overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, a rich food and wine tradition and a cultural landscape of great depth.
In short, all the ingredients to dedicate at least a weekend in one of the most surprising cities in France. Let's find out the 5 things to do when you are in Bordeaux.
Admire the Pey Berland Tour Go to Place de la Bourse Discover Le Monument aux Girondins Taste Bordeaux Cross the Pordont de Pierre Admire the Pey Berland Tour
If you are in the historic center of Bordeaux it is impossible not to notice it. The Tour Pey Berland is the bell tower of the Saint André Cathedral, in the heart of the Girondine city, where it stands thanks to its 66 meters high. Open to the public and open to visitors, it allows you to enjoy a wonderful and 360-degree view over the entire historic center. To get to the top, however, you will have to climb the 231 steps of its ramp. On its top there is a statue of the Madonna, called Notre-Dame dAquitaine: six meters high and completely in gold, it weighs 1.3 tons. To enter and get to the top you pay a 6 euro ticket, but the entrance is free for all under 25 residents in the European Union.
The union between Bordeaux and water is undeniable. Lying on the banks of one of the largest estuaries in Europe, with a port where goods from all over the world arrive and surrounded by beaches with very high dunes, Bordeaux lives with water and water. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that in the center of one of the main squares the Place de la Bourse is the largest artificial water mirror in the world. For centuries it has represented the symbol of Bordeaux, a sign of its greatness and wealth. Built during the 1700s, it took over 20 years to complete it. Place de la Bourse is surrounded by majestic buildings, whose facades are reflected at any time of day in its immense swimming pool.
Among the most photographed attractions and monuments in Bordeaux, Le Monument aux Girondins celebrated all the inhabitants of the region who died during the French Revolution. The column, 43 meters high, stands in the center of the Esplanade des Quinconces which, with its 120 thousand square meters, is among the largest in the world.
As we said, the Girondine city is not just wine. But it is impossible to think of visiting it and not to taste even a glass of the excellent red produced in the vineyards and countryside surrounding the city. Choose one of the many cafés along the banks of the Garonne or in the historic center of the city, get the wine list and choose the one that inspires you the most. Or, if you are not a connoisseur, get advice from a waiter. Or you can go to the restaurant of the famous Cité du Vin and while you are visiting it: it is a monument to wine. In autumn or spring, then, it is beautiful to go and visit the châteaux that are in the surrounding area, where wine is produced, surrounded by splendid vineyards.
Commissioned by Napoleon and finished building in 1822, it is the first stone bridge ever built in Bordeaux. Before this date, to pass from one bank to the other of the Garonne it was necessary to rely on one of the many small boats present. 487 meters long, it consists of 17 arches and today it is crossed every day by dozens and dozens of ultramodern trams, which allow you to travel between the modern and the ancient part of the city.
