Know More about this tour

Your 2-hour walking tour starts from the tourist office in central Bordeaux. The exact route may vary depending on the weather and number of people in the group, but your guide will be sure to show you as many of the citys highlights as possible.

Walk to Monument aux Girondins, a dramatic fountain statue commemorating the Girondists, a group of political martyrs who were executed for their militant support during the French Revolution.

Continue along the banks of the Garonne River to Place de la Bourse, home to the stock exchange. This square was laid out in the 1700s by King Louis XV's architect Gabriel. There you can spot the fountain of the three graces.

Make your way to Rue Sainte-Catherine, the pedestrian street in the heart of the historical city center, lined with countless shops and restaurants. Rue Sainte-Catherine often considered one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe links Place de la Victoire to Place de la Comdie.

Arrive at Place de la Comdie, a busy traffic hub that was once the site of a Roman temple. Here youll find one of France's esteemed theaters, Grand Thtre, which is also the city's cultural symbol. Built between 1773 and 1780 as testimony to the prosperity of Bordeaux's emerging bourgeoisie, its one of the last remaining 18th-century theaters in the world.

Your tour ends back at the tourist office, and your guide will be happy to give recommendations on ways to continue enjoying Bordeaux on your own.
