Bordeaux is the largest city of the Aquitaine Region in South-West of France. It is known worldwide for its vineyards, chateaux, gastronomy and historical places.
Traveling to Bordeaux is very easy. Bordeaux hosts an international airport with connections to major cities in Europe (such as Rome, Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Dublin or Stockholm) as well as Paris and other cities in France. It is also directly connected to Paris by the high-speed TGV train.
