Started working on a photo album this weekend for our “Chateaux, Rivers & Wine” Viking Cruise and realized how behind I am on blog posts of the trip. Trying to get back on track with these pictures from our full day in Bordeaux. Having already seen the gorgeous city at night, it was hard to imagine that it could get anymore incredible. (Spoiler alert, it could!)
Even between rain showers, I fell in love with the pristine facades and classic architecture. The Monument aux Girondins in The Place des Quinconces was a sight to behold. Even the row of sycamore trees that we walked through on our guided tour seemed something out of a storybook.
After our tour ended, we enjoyed lunch, wine, and people-watching from the comfort of Comptoir cuisine. The restaurant was located directly across from the magnificent Grand-Théâtre de Bordeaux and had me longing to watch an opera performance. I think I could have happily spent the entire week exploring the city and was somewhat sad to sail away from the port that evening. But alas, we had many more breathtaking places to see, and I have many more pictures to share over the coming days!
