The Free Walking Tour
Find + Info: Bordeaux City Free Walking Tour
In my opinion, the best way to get an introduction to the history of the city is with the Free Walking Tours. Through all my travels in Europe, I have always opted for this option. You get to learn a lot about the historical side, see all the most important buildings and get an idea on how the locals live.
Make sure to make a reservation before and choose the kind of tour that best fits you.
The Marche Des Capucins Market
This market has everything you need to delight yourself. From artisanal cheeses produced in farm areas to a significant variety of fresh seafood such as: buckets of mussels and oyster dishes. The prices are reasonable and needless to say that all the food prepared is fantastic, is made from the native farmers that reside in the lands near Bordeaux.
