Venture Out of Paris for a Wine-Filled Weekend in Bordeaux

While Paris may be the City of Lights, Bordeaux is the city of wine. While many dream of visiting Paris, Bordeaux has received new awards every year. After being voted “Best European Destination 2015” and taking the number two spot in the New York Times “Cities to Visit in 2016 List,” Bordeaux is the Lonely Planet guide’s “Top Pick for 2017” and the Los Angeles Times ranks Bordeaux first in its “2017 Annual List of Destinations to Visit.”

No need to choose! Start in Paris, but at a mere two hours by LGV train ride away, be sure to add Bordeaux to your itinerary. The city hums with honey-hued limestone monuments and churches dating from the 18th century onward. Its impressive modern, streamlined tram system makes it easy and pleasurable to move around quickly and conveniently.
