It was good to see a city break idea in the magazine, and it would seem that Bordeaux is where it’s at, if we are to believe Rick Stein too! I have been watching his TV series with great interest, and combining his Bordeaux episode and your article (UK February 2017, issue 221) has meant that I am now considering booking a weekend away to sample its many delights.
I am a huge fan of French wine and it sounds like the Cité du Vin might be the excuse I need for further education, both practical and academic. I might give the bikes a miss though, the tram sounds like a perfectly comfortable option. Frank Michaels Shrewsbury, Shropshire
