Description

We’ll leave by bike from the Quai des Chartrons to see the locations and monuments in Bordeaux that have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Cycling along the Garonne to the Pont de Pierre, keep an eye out for the many amusing mascarons decorating the facades of the buildings. Take in the enormity of the Grand Théâtre and the Place de la Bourse. The bike tour will finish up with a visit to the wine museum, located just a few steps from our ship. You’ll learn about the history of the Bordeaux wine trading, the great merchant families of the area, the prestigious classifications developed by Napoleon III, and the modernization of wine-making techniques. Our visit will be followed by a glass of wine and a snack of cannelé, a local pastry.
