A river runs through it . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The long-aban­donned Garonne is now the fo­cus of at­ten­tion in Bordeaux. Lo­cals flock to the river for pop­u­lar sum­mer events, Bordeaux fête le Vin and Bordeaux fête le Fleuve, and un­der the hot sun, chil­dren can be seen ca­vort­ing in the Mir­ror d'eau which flanks the river. The river shut­tle, Ci­ty­bat 3 is the per­fect way in which to take in Bordeaux's spec­tac­u­lar city-scape - at a re­move, on the wa­ter! Lux­ury cruises will al­ways make time for pas­sen­gers to dis­cover the vine­yards, is­lands, small har­bours and mon­u­ments along the Garonne like the Ver­rou Vauban fort at Blaye. All the above, and much more can be found on this map, along with cru­cial in­for­ma­tion about where to stop for lunch on both sides of the river be­tween Quin­sac and Pauil­lac!
