Bordeaux at a glance
The wine capital of the world isn’t just for oenophiles – there’s also art in a submarine base, contemporary architecture, clubbing on a boat, and festivals throughout the year for everything from food and wine to surfing, cinema and jazz.
Every Sunday, the Quai des Chartrons on the bank of the Garonne river transforms into an open-air food and wine market. Wander past the CAPC contemporary art museum (capc-bordeaux.fr), antique dealers on rue Notre-Dame, and exhibition venue Hangar 14, and make sure to try the famous oysters from nearby Arcachon.
