The French call Bordeaux the Port of the Moon - a city nestled on the banks of the gracefully curving Garonne. She divides it into right and left banks, each of which can captivate fans of architecture from the times of early classicism for a long time. It is no coincidence that UNESCO includes the Port of the Moon in the World Heritage List, and tours to Bordeaux are popular not only among lovers of the famous wine.

History with geography

The Celts also founded Bordeaux in the 1st century BC, but soon Julius Caesar appropriated the city and even made it the capital of Aquitaine Gaul. Until the Middle Ages, Bordeaux were not famous for anything, until the era of winemaking began. The local claret was so fond of the British that local craftsmen from the Medoc and Lafite regions tirelessly sealed bottles for export to the capital of Foggy Albion.
Today, in the vicinity of the city, there are up to fifteen hundred wineries, many of which tour participants in Bordeaux can take excursions for tastings and acquaintance with the technology of the process..
