Bordeaux

Jump to last reply

This city doesn't seem to get much love. We are planning a trip for May 2014 and we will start in Lisbon (stay 4 nights) overnight train to San Sebastian (stay another 4 nights) and then we need to finish up our 2 week trip with a place to fly home from. We do not want to end in Madrid or Barcelona so we are thinking about heading up to Paris with a stop for 3 nights in Bordeaux. We considered the Loire Valley but it's a long daytime train ride from San Seb. to there so we thought we might give Bordeaux a quick visit.

So....I'm thinking a day trip to St. Emillion and maybe seeing a chateau. We have limited interest in wine but if the chateau was scenic besides being a wine venue, it might interest us. Any comments on spending 2 and a half days in Bordeaux? We like to ride bikes, and I've read its flat around there. Are there some designated bike trails?
