With a long history of producing regional wines since the Romans brought grapevines here during the first century, so many people consider Bordeaux to be the wine capital of the world.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ecuries Olivier Bauer and La ville d'Hiver. Get some historical perspective at Cathedrale St-Front and Eglise Sainte-Radegonde de Talmont. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Bordeaux: Vesunna (in Perigueux), La Maison du Vigneron de Sauternes (in Sauternes) and Dune du Pilat (in La Teste-de-Buch). Dedicate the 6th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Chateau Cantenac, browse the fresh offerings at Issigeac Sunday Market, explore the historical opulence of Chateau de Bridoire, and browse for treasures at Atelier-Brocante de la Minoterie.

To find where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Bordeaux itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport, Bergerac-Roumanière Airport and La Rochelle-Île de Ré Airport. In March, daytime highs in Bordeaux are 59°F, while nighttime lows are 42°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
