Description

The world´s wine capital is only two hours away from Paris. Fancy setting off on a tour through the historical town and its charming streets? Our Historical Bordeaux Free Walking Tour is the perfect option if you want to enjoy an unforgettable experience in the city.

We will start our route in Pey-Berland Tower which has at the top an imposing golden statue of Notre-Dame d´Aquitaine. It was originally built as a bell tower and currently offers the most beautiful views of the city of Bordeaux. We will also talk about the striking Cathedral of Saint-André, a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance styles making it one of the city´s must-see landmarks.

Alongside our English speaking guide, we will walk along the charming Saint-Pierre neighbourhood, filled with antiques and picturesque alleyways. Here you will find the popular Place de la Bourse and the monumental gateway Porte Cailhau that was integrated into the city´s walls.

Subsequently,  we will wander towards the Triangle d ´Or (The Golden Triangle) formed by Les Allées de Tourny and the Cours de l´Intendance and the Clemenceau all of which reflect the most characteristic examples of local architectural heritage. Stand back and admire the Bordeaux National Opera and L'îlot Louis, both of extraordinary architectural beauty.

Lastly, we will admire the Monument to the Girondists in the Place des Quinconces. It consists of a 43 metre-high pillar which holds a bronze sculpture that depicts freedom attempting to blow up the chains of oppression.
