If you haven't already picked a place to stay in the heart of Bordeaux, I recommend we set a meeting point outside the city center. This way, we can head into the city together by taking the tram and experience the local life! With the cost of parking in the city center becoming prohibitively expensive, I suggest meeting at one of Bordeaux's park-and-ride facilities (for less than 5€, which includes daily parking and one round trip on the tram network for each car occupant).
Now, onto discovering Bordeaux. This city is full of hidden gems and historic landmarks. For one day, I propose we see the following:
This will give us a chance to understand the different sides of the city. The narrow streets of Old Bordeaux, which are steeped in medieval history, and the wide boulevards of the city that were developed during the 18th century, the Golden Age of Bordeaux. During this time, the city underwent major urban changes due to the economic prosperity brought on by the wine and colonial products trade, but also from darker parts of history, like slavery & triangular trade.
Of course, we can tailor our exploration of Bordeaux's streets to a theme of your choice, like medieval Bordeaux or the Baroque churches of Bordeaux. And I highly suggest visiting one of the two museums I offer in my tours (entrance fees not included):
