France’s wine capital is also the world’s largest urban World Heritage Site, with more than half the city sealed within its UNESCO-listed bounds. “The very essence of elegance,” concluded The Queen upon her last visit to the city, and many would agree, putting Bordeaux ahead of Lyon, Marseille—even Paris—as the French city to visit. Your stay here features an immersive wine experience at La Cité du Vin, followed by vineyard visits. You’ll also have the additional experience of a guided tour through Saint-Émilion. Walk along the historic city walls, visiting unique artist galleries and studios, and indulge in a wine tasting at a grand cru estate. The day’s exploration also takes you to Rue Sainte-Catherine, Bordeaux’s main shopping street, and to dinner at a local Château.

Highlights

Le Bistrot du Gabriel: Inside, this restaurant has a gourmet dining room, but the bustling bistro is outside, splendidly set right on the Place de la Bourse across from the River Garonne.

La Brasserie Bordelaise: Located on Rue Saint-Rémi, one of the busiest streets in Bordeaux, La Brasserie Bordelaise is a gem that even locals vie their way for a reservation.

Apache: The workshop of Bordeaux jewelry designer Charlotte Guillard.

Mieux: A one-stop shop for chic handbags, clothes, French papery, and trinkets.

Libraire Michele Masson: A rare book shop filled with beautifully aged tomes. Don’t worry if you can’t speak a lick of French, these books tell a tale that’s all their own.

Rue Sainte-Catherine: The longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe hums with activity at all hours, with plenty of cafes in which to give your legs (and wallet) a break.
