Discover Bordeaux

Since the Millennium, Bordeaux has undergone a tireless regeneration programme that has seen its neo-classical architecture restored, its boulevards pedestrianised and its tourism levels soar. It's now regarded as the world's largest UNESCO urban heritage site, not to mention an international heavyweight when it comes to wine production. As a largely flat city with a welcome shortage of ugly skyscrapers, Bordeaux is the perfect place to explore on foot or by bicycle, a fact acknowledged by some 580km of bike tracks. So whether it's a leisurely cycle through the old town peppered with a spot of sight-seeing, or a trip to any one of the region's amazing vineyards - rest assured this is a holiday destination that transcends the seasons to be enjoyable all year round. In short, this city often referred to as a 'Little Paris', is a place you can't fail to fall hook, line and sinker for. Book your cheap flights to Bordeaux with Flybe today.

Shops and markets in Bordeaux

Fast becoming a serious rival for Paris' fashion crown, Bordeaux is a fantastic shopping destination, whatever your budget. High end fashion and designer boutiques are clustered around the Triangle-d'Or, whilst more reasonably priced fashion, beauty and homeware buys can be found around the Rue Sainte-Catherine - a lengthy pedestrianised street, packed with high-street stores and smaller boutiques. Come to Bordeaux for something a little different? Then make sure you pay a visit to the Chartrons district, which is renowned for its art, vintage and antique pieces. Bordeaux also delivers when it comes to the traditional French market - the best foodie ones are Marché des Capucins or Marché des Quais for food shopping with riverside views on a Sunday.
