France Bordeaux World War Submarine Bunkers
One of the most exciting locations in town is La Base Sous-Marine, which was built during World War II so the Germans could protect the country's U-boat fleet from aerial attack. After being abandoned for decades, the huge concrete bunker with 11 submarine channels is now a trendy, underground cultural centre, art gallery and music concert venue.
The city's gem, the river Garonne, flows from northern Spain into the Atlantic Ocean at Bordeaux. Take some time to stroll along the banks, passing green gardens as you take in the beautiful views. Lounge on the café terraces of the old warehouses on the Quai de Bacalan or take the ferry to the other side.
Not only the wine is magnifique in Bordeaux. Taste oysters from the Bay of Arcachon, delicious mushrooms, superb asparagus, organic ice cream and sweet raspberries. Les Halles de Bacalan, a contemporary food market in a waterfront hangar, is a great spot to grab a quick gourmet bite.
For high-end shops, head to the boulevards around the Triangle d'Or. However, if you're seeking more modest price tags, the trendy Saint Pierre district is the place to be. Don't forget to pick up a few excellent bottles of Bordeaux wine. If you're looking for unique items from bric-a-brac shops, go to the bohemian Place Saint-Michel.
