Bordeaux lies on the southern part of France on both banks of the River Garonne.
Hearing the name of the city, first everyone thinks of wine, which is obvious, since Bordeaux is most famous for its wineyards. However there are some more aspects that this city can deliver to tourists. For example the Old Town of Bordeaux is part of the UNESCO World Heritage list, and luckily it survived with little damage from the Second World War when the Germans took hold of the city.
Other architectural sights to visit are the churches of the city, the Saint André Cathedral, the Sainte-Croix church and the Saint Pierre church. You can save valuable minutes if you travel between these sights by car.
If you cannot decide where to start or in what order you wish to see these marvels it is essential that you rent a car, since there are so many things to see that if you hesitate too much and use public transport or some other alternative, you might run out of time and happen to miss something really priceless.
