Departure by coach from the ship for both a panoramic and walking tour of Bordeaux, city recently listed as UNESCO World Heritage site. This distinction recognizes the beauty and unity of style of Bordeaux's architectural heritage, which has developed harmoniously over the centuries and remained remarkably well-preserved.
Begin with a scenic drive around the city of Bordeaux prior to the walking portion of your tour. Experience the sites of the city, including the WWII German submarine base, the Chartrons river front, the 18th century Place de la Bourse, the Cailhau Gate and the Big Bell. View the Palais Rohan, now the City Hall, and then visit the 13th-century Cathedral of St Andrew. Continue with a drive through Gambetta and Tourny squares. Pass by the monument to the Girondins of the French Revolution at the Quinconces square. Enjoy a walk to the Grand Theater, one of the most beautiful in Europe. Stroll through the Old Bordeaux area, featuring the Parlement Square and St. Pierre Square ending at the pier.
Please note: This tour includes approximately 1 1/2 hours of walking plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. It is available to wheelchair guests who are able to both make their way on and off the coach and sit in a coach seat. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. A windbreaker or light jacket and comfortable, flat walking shoes are strongly recommended.
