... essentially consist of undisturbed beautiful architecture and it is amazing to look around a town almost complete with these buildings in such good condition.
The other thing things that Bordeaux offers is great boutique, fashion and food shopping. We spend the remainder of the day and evening looking at the shops and sampling some of the yummy wine the region has to offer!
... A fabulous city. Wonderful shops, magnificent buildings and a couple of quirky items. The mirror d'eau (water mirror) was amazing. A wet pavement where you can walk or play which is misted at regular intervals. And the blue lion - why? But an amazing place to see. Even the cafe creme was excellent. And back to the campsite in the rush hour. The trams were packed - like sardines, and the roads were heaving. Hot showers and a cooked meal were the day's ...

Shortly after re-joining the path there was another "route barre" sign ...

Apparently massive implementation issues, especially in rain, but now working well. As the trams come into the old area they lower their pantograph (overhead connector stuff) and away they go. They also have no massive rear vision mirrors...all done with cameras.
