Shopping or a cruise? BOTH!
Shopaholics can head to the Rue Sainte-catherine (its length of 1.5 km makes it the longest shopping street in Europe) and the Rue PorteDijeaux; or to the boutiques in the ‘golden triangle’ made up of the avenues Cours de l’intendance, Cours Clémenceau and Allées de Tourny. Follow up with a lunch cruise or an evening tasting cruise on the River Garonne: an ideal way to admire the UNESCO listed facades of the “Port of the Moon” at sunset, with a glass of Bordeaux wine in hand. www.croisiere-bordeaux.com (departures from the Ponton d’honneur and Cité du Vin pontoons)
