Landmarks of Bordeaux Tour
What: This tour highlights the most famous landmarks in Bordeaux. We will discuss the Grand Theatre located in the heart of downtown; the monument to the Girondins and its fountain which was slated to become scrap metal during WWII; the Allée de Tourny and its role in the architecture of this 18th-century city; the Place de la Bourse which was built by King Louis XV in the early 1700's as the Royal Plaza, and rue St. Catherine which has been the “main street or high street” since Roman times.
While we are walking we will talk about French customs and culture, sharing our local knowledge and our french experience. We believe you will find this tour to be an excellent synopsis of the history of Bordeaux, and a great point of departure for further adventuring around our city.
