Bordeaux is really fortunate: a river is running through it.
Cities crossed by rivers are different, atypical, open to the world. There is always something to do or see around a river and the Burdigala cruises (former name of Bordeaux in Roman times) offer a beautiful cruise on the river which has forged the city's identity throughout its history. In French, Bordeaux literally means 'water edges'.
A cruise is a great way to discover the Bordeaux docks and its heritage listed by UNESCO.
