Bordeaux Overnight Trip from Paris Itinerary

Day 1 – Bordeaux Overnight

Train station pickup and hotel transfer.  If arriving in early afternoon, we recommend a visit to the Cite du Vin, the world’s largest wine museum (tickets not included).  Then have a walk or rest before heading to your pre-reserved dinner at one of Bordeaux’s traditional restaurants.

Day 2 – Visit Arcachon and the Medoc

Just an hour’s drive from Bordeaux is the Atlantic Ocean and the gorgeous Bay of Arcachon.   After hotel check out (bags stored for the day), you’ll visit an oyster farm and do a tasting paired with crisp white Bordeaux wine.  Then choose to climb Pyla’s Sand Dune (the biggest in Europe), or just take a cool photo of it for Instagram.

Back to Bordeaux for a generous picnic lunch in the center of town.  Then enjoy a beautiful drive via minivan to the countryside for two Medoc tastings, one at a famous appellation, the other at a well-regarded family estate. Breads, cheeses and meats are offered to complement the wines. 

Your Bordeaux overnight ends as you take the train back to Paris or stay an additional night on your own exploring Bordeaux.
