Bordeaux is a wine region located in the southwest of France. The name may be familiar because wines made in this region are referred to as Bordeaux wines. Below is a list of places to see and things to do while in Bordeaux, France:


Go on a Wine Tour/ Attend a Wine Tasting Event
If you visit Bordeaux, you must drink the wine; it is a wine region, after all. Take a tour of the local wineries in the area and learn about the wine making process. Some of the tours may come with wine samples and tasting to make the adventure even more exciting. You’ll get to taste the different kinds of Bordeaux available for consumption, and you may pick up a quick tip or two when choosing the right wine for your meal.


Indulge in Local Cuisine and Culture
The Bordelais cuisine is rich in seafood and cattle, and you can also indulge in the rich other French cuisines around you. Explore the culture and learn the history of the place, from the locals or from the places you choose to visit. While there, also take a walk through the Bordeaux Public Garden.


Look at Your Reflection in Miroir D’Eau
Mirori d’eau is the world’s largest reflecting pool and was constructed in 2006. The pool is made of granite grounds and then covered by 2 centimeters of water. Mist is created every 15 minutes to show off its grandeur. Visitors can see their reflection in the water during the day, and, at night, the lights create beautiful replicas of the buildings surrounding the pool.


Visit Cite du Vin
This museum is made with colorful glass and an irregular shape that instantly captures one’s attention. The building was established in 2016 and serves as a place for exhibitions, shows and academic wine seminars.
