Bordeaux in 3 days.

We will be in Bordeaux for 3 days in mid-June. Arriving by TGV on June 10th and leaving June 13th. Is 3 days enough? We want to visit at least one winery. Are the tours organized by the Bordeaux Tourist office a good choice? Do you think it is better to book them in advance or just while in Bordeaux? We will be staying at the Acanthe Hotel. Do we need to rent a car or is every thing pretty much "walkable"? What are the "must see's" in Bordeaux? We are interested in architecture and I just love old churches!!

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Within the city of Bordeaux you absolutely do not need a car. Much of the centre is closed to cars.

The tram will take you from the TGV station at St Jean to the Bourse stop, barely 100 metres away from the hotel or you can take a taxi of course.

Many of the city sights are within waking distance of the Acanthe Hotel. There is a comprehensive and efficient network of trams and buses to get you about if and when the feet tire or to the more distant areas. A pass for all transport costs just €4,30 for one day or €11,30 for seven days and the seven day ticket offers a 20% discount to the wine tours organised by the tourist office.

Information, only in French, at www.infotbc.com

I don't know the wine tours but a regular contributor will soon come along who does.
