Stroll the small towns in the Bordeaux and find old ruins and castles. Most are reached most easily by car/vehicle.

Additionally, accommodation can be found as close as a hundred yards from the train station in the city.

If you are staying in the city of Bordeaux (located on the Garrone River), rather than the countryside, you will be in a UNESCO historical city. There are many beautiful churches, palaces, and bridges in this city on the water. Bordeaux is also the largest university site in France, so you are bound to run into university students or have the chance to study abroad in this city. From Bordeaux (the city), there are many tours you can take, including wine and city tours.

Getting around the city is fairly simple; there are trams and buses, as well as taxis and car and bicycle rentals. However, parking in the city is expensive and scarce. The city is fairly safe, but at night try to avoid Place de la Victoire and the train station and its surrounding streets. All in all, this gorgeous city and region are not to be missed!
