There’s more to France than just Paris! If you’re itching to explore some of France’s other cities, then be sure to take a little look at this nifty city break to Bordeaux I put together!
Solo City Break to Bordeaux
Famous for the wine grown in the local region, Bordeaux is a bustling city straddling the banks of the Garonne river that has so much to offer. Its historic core is filled with wonderfully grand buildings and façades, the river offers wonderful strolls, and to top it all off you have everything from buzzing nightlife to fine dining and brilliant museums. And of course, you can always do a day trip to one of the many vineyards nearby!
I’ve managed to put this deal together using Airbnb and Skyscanner. With it you’ll have return flights from Cork to Bordeaux as well as 4 nights at a super cute apartment I spotted over at Airbnb. You’ll have your own private room as well as access to the kitchen and bathroom – and there’s a great little balcony where you can enjoy views out across the rooftops!
Bordeaux is a UNESCO World Heritage city, so as you can imagine there’s loads to get stuck into. If you want to learn a little more about the region’s wine-growing heritage, then I recommend checking out the Cité du Vin. You can’t miss it – it’s a huge glass building that is filled to the brim with all sorts of exhibitions and displays! And of course you can enjoy a few tipples at the wine tastings there!
