3 Days in Bordeaux: Suggested Itineraries

It’s impossible to mention the name Bordeaux without thoughts of ruby red wine, so charge your glass and drink deep of the region's many charms. This lovely city on the lower Atlantic coast is a Neo-Classical beauty with pedestrianized boulevards, gorgeous architecture and a boisterous university population ensuring a lively mix of bars and cafes. Pair your choice of wine with excellent restaurants and local cuisine, and experience 'la vie en rose' in one of the premier destinations in France.

Day 1: Bordeaux in a Day

Start the day with a stroll along Bordeaux’s pedestrianized shopping strip, Ste-Catherine, for window shopping at chic boutiques and breakfast in a sidewalk cafe. Then choose from art, history and culture at the city’s museums, perhaps 17th century paintings at the Beaux-Arts Museum, housed in the 1770s town hall. For a primer on French taste, view exquisite gilt, porcelain and furnishings at the Museum of Decorative Arts. As the afternoon lengthens, take a stroll in Bordeaux's English-style gardens before choosing a classic French brasserie for Atlantic oysters and duck confit.

Day 2: Savoir Faire

Where better than Bordeaux to refine your palate and discover the art of pairing food and wine? Sample wine and cheese combinations in a local restaurant, or sign up for a wine course at the Maison du Vin de Bordeaux – you can choose from a two-hour class, day-long session or intensive four-day course.

Day 3: Nearby Gems

Bordeaux is surrounded by vineyards and wine villages, and the two most popular destinations for a wine-tasting day trip are Médoc and St-Émilion. Visitors to the Médoc are rewarded by classic Margaux and Saint Julien red wines, sand-dune beaches, Atlantic surf and pine forests. The vineyards surrounding medieval St-Émilion are so precious they’re World Heritage listed. Take a guided tour of St-Émilion’s steep village streets and subterranean catacombs, caves and cloisters, then break the ice with a fun blind wine tasting at the Maison du Vin.
