Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Bordeaux and its surroundings
So, you've arrived in Bordeaux at your Hotel Restaurant Campanile Bordeaux Sud- Gradignan- Talence. What to do now? Well, the possibilities are endless! For starters, your hotel is in the suburb of Gradignan, which is home to the Georges de Sonneville museum. He was a local painter and the museum houses some of his works, and this is a great place to get a sense of the local flavour and culture. More local and regional history can be found in the centre of Bordeaux in the Aquitaine Museum. Bordeaux is the capital of the Aquitaine region, and in this museum you'll find historical and archaeological artefacts which have been collected from all over the region. Artefacts from other cultures, such as Oriental or Inuit findings, are also sometimes on display. Culture is never far away in Bordeaux, and the Grand Theatre is one of the best places to find it. Opera, ballet and classical concerts are always happening here, so for anyone interested in music and dance, this is the place to be. Food and drink are also an integral part of life in Bordeaux, so why not take a tour of a vineyard and sample some of the local wines and cuisine? As Bordeaux is a port city, the seafood here is particularly renowned, and the oysters are a speciality not to be missed. Markets are on all year round, so see what you can find!
