Home to the largest and oldest vineyards in the world, Bordeaux is a treasure for foodies, wine lovers, and history buffs alike.
Bordeaux has been a cultural melting pot since it was first settled more than 2000 years ago. Since that time, the territory has belonged to a myriad of people and cultures: the Celts, the Romans, the English, and the French have all called this region home, creating what is now a vibrant culture that embraces aspects of all of these groups. An old European city with an exceptional wealth of historical and architectural heritage, Bordeaux is the essence of elegance and one of the most beautiful cities in France. As the capital of the country's wine-making Aquitaine region, the city is the gateway to five different wine trails leading to world class vintages and mythical châteaux.
