BORDEAUX is a port-city in the southwest of France whose popularity has leapt in recent years. It is most famous for its wine, which has, incredibly, been produced since the eighth century, and therefore built up a well-deserved reputation for superiority. Honeymooners must go on a wine-tasting trip. Bordeaux’s climate is consistently pleasant, often hot; it hasn’t been designated as having a Mediterranean temperature, due to the amount of rain it gets in summer. If you go, take an umbrella – and sunglasses. Ideal for couples who like old-fashioned lifestyles, beautiful buildings, and traditional streets, Bordeaux provides an all-round experience. With one of Europe’s biggest architectural urban areas, Bordeaux has also been classified as city of art and history. The Opera National de Bordeaux has a reputation for quality and should definitely be sampled. Bordeaux offers all the charms of France without being overtly touristic. Honeymooners who wish to sample cheese, wine, cycling, and spectacular sights will love this seaside-city.
