Highlights of this cruise:

Bordeaux
Bordeaux is a port city in the south west of France. It is the capital city of the Aquitaine region and is famous for its many varieties of wine, which are considered among the best in the world.

Bordeaux is a historical city with many tourist attractions. The city itself boasts elegant neoclassical architecture, wide avenues, and attractive public squares and parks. The centre of town lies between Place Gambetta and the Garonne River. There are many fascinating museums and art galleries, excellent shopping and beautiful gardens to enjoy.

Bordeaux also offers a great selection of cafes and restaurants in the Place de la Victoire, the Place du Parlement or the Rue de Parlement Sainte Catherine. Sample some of Bordeaux’s lively nightlife by checking out the city’s late night dance venues on the Quai de Paludate.

Libourne
Libourne is a commune in the Gironde department in Aquitaine in southwestern France. It is a sub-prefecture of the department and is located at the confluence of the Islae and Dordogne rivers. It is the wine-making capital of northern Gironde and lies near Saint-Émilion and Pomerol.

Attractions in Libourne include the Gothic church, restored in the 19th century, which has a stone spire 232 ft (71 m) high. On the quay there is a machicolated clock-tower which is a survival of the defensive walls of the 14th century; and the town-house, containing a small museum and a library, is a quaint relic of the 16th century. It is located by the main square, the Place Abel Surchamp, which hosts one of the largest fresh food markets in the region every weekend. There is a statue of Élie, duc Decazes, who was born in the neighborhood.

Pauillac
Pauillac is a small wine producing village and port on the Gironde estuary, located approximately an hour from Bordeaux, France. The village consists of only 12 km² of vineyards in the Haut-Médoc between the villages of Saint-Julien to the south and Saint-Estèphe to the north.

Pauillac is the largest town in the Médoc region and central to the most important vineyards of Bordeaux; in fact it is home to three of Bordeaux's five first growth wines: Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Latour, and Château Mouton-Rothschild.
