Bordeaux is not only famed for its wine, but also its fascinating history, attractive neoclassical architecture, and fine cuisine. After getting an overview of the city and tasting bread, chocolate, and cheese, savor a local lunch served with regional wine.
Formerly known as the “Sleeping Beauty” and a symbol of the French art de vivre (lifestyle), Bordeaux is the largest urban complex listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander around its open boulevards, narrow medieval streets, and large squares surrounded by cafés and restaurants. Admire the stunning neo-classical architecture of the imposing Bordeaux Cathedral before you buy some ingredients for later.
Breathe in the enticing smell of fresh bread coming out of the oven as you reach a cozy bakery to meet with the baker and learn about its techniques and traditions. Next, visit a renowned chocolatier to explore secret recipes used for generations and to taste its most famous creations, from ginger chocolate to green tea and even olive. Continue on to a cheese shop and enjoy some of France's most loved cheeses.
Conclude this gastronomic adventure with a local lunch prepared using the ingredients purchased earlier. Taste the exquisite canelé, a sweet pastry made with rum and vanilla, and savor a glass of regional wine to complete your gourmet experience.
