Visit Bordeaux and La Cité du Vin
Bordeaux is one of the most beautiful cities in France, famous for the wine regions surrounding it. Bordeaux’s historic center is listed as UNESCO World Heritage, and it is populated with beautiful 18th-century private mansions. These elegant buildings reflect the city’s wealth when it was the busiest port in France. The Port of Bordeaux was trading in goods from all over the world in addition to wine.
Explore the Basque Country
The (French) Basque Country, with its strong character and rich culture, is one of the best places to visit in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, the perfect playground for those who love the ocean, mountains, history, small towns, local specialties, and good wine. Nothing is ordinary in the Basque Country: neither the language, traditions, nor the food, but you will love it!
Biking around Ile-de-Ré
Lying off the coast of La Rochelle, Ile-de-Ré is an attractive and popular summer destination amongst the French, with a lively atmosphere, especially around the port.
Stone Age Cave Paintings of Lascaux
Located in the region of Dordogne, Lascaux’s cave paintings are probably the world’s most famous and recognizable examples of pre-historic art.
It is not clear the exact age of the paintings but the current consensus places them at about 17,000 years old. The area has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
