For a romantic ambience, nothing beats Place de la Bourse, a square with a spectacular reflecting pool that is the perfect backdrop to your visit.
Take a Bordeaux shopping trip
Your romantic weekend in Bordeaux may well include a trip to the shops. The Promenade Sainte Catherine is one of the best places to browse. Even if you're just window-shopping, the charming boutiques here will give you plenty to look at.
Food and wine in Bordeaux
What would a romantic getaway to Bordeaux be without wine? The full-bodied local red is famous across the world, and you'll find plenty of chances to sample it during your stay here.
Bordeaux wine will often make its way onto your plate, too. Entrecôte marchand de vin is the most famous local speciality. This rich dish consists of a delicious steak cooked in a sauce made from wine, butter and shallots. It's certainly not one for calorie counters!
One of the most romantic things to do in Bordeaux has to be a trip to La Cité du Vin. This wine museum is dedicated to France's favourite drink. You'll learn how to taste like a pro, as well as uncovering some fascinating facts about the world history of wine.
More wine adventures can be had at Château La Dominique, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where you'll be able to see how wine is made first-hand. If you're lucky, you may even get the chance to stomp some grapes.
