In the southwestern region of France lies the port city of Bordeaux, which is well known for vineyards & fine wine. Instead of touring this city by land, traveler Katie Hammel embarked on an Amawaterways river cruise to visit the surrounding areas. She discovered an abundance of history & culture that would have been missed had she only stayed in Bordeaux. In addition to the amazing experience of wine tasting, the itinerary introduced tourists to the area’s local fresh cuisine, outdoor markets, historical castles, basilicas & ruins, including a chateau with 20 acres of caves & tunnels. Historical ties to World War II as well as Roman burial tombs were explored.
“Bordeaux, a port city in southwestern France, has always been synonymous with the high-quality wines it produces, but as I discovered on a river cruise through the area, its appeal isn’t limited to the vineyards.”
