3 Perfect Days in Bordeaux

There are so many places to see in France that deciding where to go is difficult. So when a friend suggested a Bordeaux visit, I said, “When?!”  Although I could have stayed much longer, the itinerary gave me 3 perfect days in Bordeaux. It gave me enough of a taste of the city: its wine, its culture, its history, and its beauty, to let me know I have to return again.

Here’s a brief review of the Bordeaux guide you’ll find in the next posts, the itinerary, and points of interest each day.
