Destinations / Europe

France is often considered one of the more expensive European destinations to visit, but once you get out of Paris and make your way to the smaller cities, like Bordeaux in the southwestern corner of the country, you’ll find cheap ways to make the most of your visit. Here are the top ways to do Bordeaux on a budget.


Stroll Along River Garonne

The riverfront is long and winding, stretching from the Cité du Vin wine museum in the north to the Pont Saint-Jean in the south.


Marvel in the Architecture of Chartrons

Spend a few hours walking around the charming neighborhood of Chartrons, where vintage shops, markets and boutiques complement the fin-de-siècle architecture.


Have a Picnic in the Public Garden

The Jardin Public is a peaceful natural respite from the city streets, complete with a pond and walking trails. Grab a baguette and some French cheese for a relaxing afternoon on the grass.


Ride the Tram for a Scenic, Self-Guided Tour

The tram’s three lines take you in different directions all over the city. A one-trip ticket costs less than $2 and gives you a front-row seat to some of Bordeaux’s main sights.


Check Out Free Wine Tastings

Some of the wine shops around the city have free wine tastings in the afternoon. You may only get a sip or two, but if you hop around to a few, you’ll have a chance to taste a healthy sampling of Bordeaux wines.
