Access to Wineries

by BooFit

We will be in Gironde in the first week of October and plan on visiting some wineries. Will it be possible to visit Chateau Latour, Chateau Margaux and Chateau Lafite without making any reservation or booking? If reservation is required how does one go about it? I read on a website that one needs local connections to gain access to some of the famous chateaux. Is this true? How can I connect with such local connections? Is there a tour for this sort of thing (visits to the three chateaux mentioned above)?
Any advice will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Wine's not my speciality, but here's what I've found :

The Bordeaux Tourist office can help you to book wineries tours, go see them when you get here, they're nice and it's not too crowded :)

Travel Tips for Bordeaux

The Grand Théâtre

by Klod5

At the end of the XVIIIth century, The city of Bordeaux was particularly lively thanks to it commercial activities (wine, colonial trade...).

The Duke of Richelieu, Governor of Guyenne, decided to equip the city with an Opera House that was fitting of such a city, and asked the architect Victor Louis (1731-1800) to oversee the project.

Started in 1773, the construction of the Grand-Théâtre took seven years to complete, and was finished in 1780. This imposing neoclassical building (88 x 47 metres) is capable of holding 1,114 people.

The Grand-Thêatre underwent a final restoration during 1990-1991, recreating the original decoration. Today the Grand Théâtre is unarguably one of the finest pieces of this city that is so marked by XVIIIth century architecture. The Grand-Thêatre presents both theatrical and musical productions, and has seen some of the finest stars of the last century: the Talma, Nourrit,Viardot, Falcon, Duprez, Petipa...

The Grand-Théâtre still offers musicals, ballet and concerts... and is true to its vocation today, more than ever.

by peteyjim

Our trip to Bordeaux was the most memorable. A 10 hour train ride from Nice was easily turned into 22hours of hell by huge storms in southern France. We had to catch a train to Paris then change to one heading to Bordeaux.
Car is definitely the go. Just don't park like this guy here!

Bordeaux's Potted Law Courts

by aaaarrgh

You may have heard of the architect (Lord) Richard Rogers, who designed Paris's Pompidou Centre. In 1998 he also added a remarkable modern addition to Bordeaux, the 'Tribunal de Grande Instance'. Here the city's law courts are contained in 7 cedar-clad ...erm ...tubs, themselves contained inside a large glass atrium. It is a very clever, subtle and beautiful building which tastefully blends with its old neighbours.

Rogers has a reputation for providing official buildings which are open, democratic and welcoming. The public can freely enter the atrium spaces during the working day and explore this part of the building. There are plenty of security officers but, as long as you don't photograph the faces of the staff and customers, you are free to take photos. It is interesting to watch the goings on, as the barristers and court staff scuttle back-and-forth dressed in their gowns and cravats.

From the top of the entrance stairs you also have an excellent view of Bordeaux Cathedral.

Porte Dijeaux: This gate has...

by Gillianina

Porte Dijeaux: This gate has riplaced the one that was built ten meters ahead towards the current Gambetta Square. Next to it there's a beautiful cafè (Dijeaux cafè) where you can have a very good typical FRENCH cappuccino for ONLY € 3.30!!!!! LOL! In Italy you would be almost arrested for selling a cappuccino at that price? lol...just kidding! Anyway I found out that in France the cappuccino is not like the one I have always tasted (not only in Italy but in several countries) but it's just coffee with whipped cream...well...was good anyway, but....after that you have to go on a diet! LOL

Beautiful Bordeaux

by arv1

I love aliteration! And I love Bordeaux! I visited Bordeaux while I was living in Paris, as I have a friend who lived there. Visiting Bordeaux and seeing it through my friends eyes, who by then had become a local, was a fantastic experience!

I only spent the weekend in Bordeaux but it captured my full attention while I was there and I would love to go back again!

Bordeaux is a pretty little city, thats looks amazing come rain or shine! There is not that many things to see in terms of tourist sights, but at the same time there is a lot to do! The nightlife is great, the people are really friendly and restaurants and cafes are fabulous!
