Located in southwest France, Bordeaux is a World Heritage Site recognised for its incredible historic cityscape. The Miroir d'Eau in front of Place de la Bourse is unmissable; this spectacular feature is the world's largest reflecting pool and is particularly popular amongst locals during the hot summer months.

The region's wine history is wonderfully recounted in the graceful, decanter-shaped La Cité du Vin museum on the banks of the Garonne River. To top it all off, your tour ends with a glass of fine Bordeaux – sheer bliss.
