Quinconces Esplanade is one of the largest squares in Europe. You will enjoy your walk among trees and impressive monuments. The last decade the place has become the most important public transport hub of the area, with two tram lines, bus lines, an electric shuttle, and coach lines through Gironde.

This place is a HUGE area which tends to host events a few times a year such as an amusement fair, football games during national, european or world championships, or the biggest Brocante (event during which you get to buy antiques) held in town. Apart from when these events take place, the place is huge and hosts nothing but dust... More

A very impressive square (one of the largest city squares in Europe), which is often used for events to benefit the community. It has an absolutely beautiful fountain that is well work seeking out to view.

One of the many animated place in Bordeaux. This is well worth walking by it. A lot of trees and benches if you want to rest a while after walking for hours. You can go there to taste some of the nearby baillardan canneles!

This is the prettiest place I've ever switched trams. It's just across the street from the Tourist Information Center. Perfect for a stroll.
