Bordeaux’ ancient and rich history contribute to its modernity and dynamism today. The city was designated UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. First, for its functions as a hub of commerce and exchange thanks to its role as the capital of a world-renowned wine growing region, and the importance of its river and port. Second, its outstanding urban and architectural ensemble, with 1810 hectares and over 360 historic monuments registered and protected.
Its pedestrian city-center is a peaceful haven, making for a pleasant visit and a great place to live. Bordeaux has developed an important bicycle lane network and is the first city to build an innovative and environmentally friendly tramway. Let us guide you through this city of wine and culture.
