Bordeaux is one of France’s most important cities, known throughout the world for its wine culture, and it’s been named Europe’s wine capital (Cité du Vin). A visit to the vineyards is in fact a must for whoever visits this incredible and fascinating city.
However Bordeaux is not just about wine. In the city, sunrise spills across exceptional 18th-century urban planning and neoclassical architecture at the same time it does the surrounding vineyards. It’s a daily awakening that echoes the city’s remarkable rise in stature and status after a major restoration and redevelopment program, especially along the banks of the Garonne. What’s in store? 350 historical monuments, scores of cultural events, world-class shopping, high-tech public transport and gastronomic wizardry like there is no tomorrow. But the sun will set and with it comes festive evenings. At least we can be confident that the night will only raise Bordeaux’s star that much higher.
Bordeaux International Airport (BOD) is also a few km away from the tournament’s location. It mainly features flights to metropolitan and leisure destinations in Europe and Northern Africa and serves as a base for Europe’s most important low-cost carriers, such as Easyjet, Ryanair and Volotea which, combined, offer cheap flights to more than 50 short and medium-haul destinations throughout Europe.
