3 Perfect Days in Bordeaux

There are so many places to visit in France it’s difficult to decide where to go next. So when a friend suggested Bordeaux, I said “when?!”  Although I could have stayed much longer, a 3-day itinerary was perfect. It gave enough of a taste of the city: its wine, its culture, its history and its beauty, to let me know I have to return again.

Here’s a brief review of the itinerary and points of interest each day.
