Bordeaux : Michelin's recommendations
With one of the largest protected townscapes in France (a Unesco World Heritage site), Bordeaux has been transformed by urban restoration projects. With the opening of its tramway network, the regeneration of its left-bank quaysides giving onto the River Garonne, and the development of the right-bank district with it abundant green spaces, this wine capital that is so justifiably proud of its history is very much focused on the future.
