Known for traditional elegance and world-famous vineyards
As the world’s wine capital, Bordeaux is a fascinating destination for many reasons. As a result of its unparalleled cultural riches and legacy, Bordeaux has been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in recognition of its survival through time without loss of splendour. The city sits on the banks of the Garonne in southwest France.
In spite of its nickname of ‘Belle Endormie’ (Sleeping Beauty), Bordeaux has hosted major sporting events such as Rugby World Cup 2007 and UEFA Euro 2016. Rugby World Cup 2023 will be memorable for all the right reasons at the brand-new, ultra-modern Stade de Bordeaux – the largest sports arena in the southwest of France.
