The little train we remember from our childhood still exists in Bordeaux... It takes visitors on a one-hour tour of the city's historic centre.
Are your children reluctant to discover Bordeaux's beautiful 18th century architecture on foot? Well, then, all aboard the little tourist train! Leaving from the Allées de Tourny, it goes through the city's oldest districts at its own rhythm so visitors can admire the most famous sites and monuments close up.
Passing along the quays in front of the famous Place de la Bourse, the train then goes into the heart of Old Bordeaux, via the Porte Cailhau, and crosses the rue Sainte Catherine, the longest pedestrian shopping precinct in Europe. Commentary in several languages tells the history and secrets of Bordeaux's outstanding architectural heritage in a simple, easy-to-understand way, accompanied by anecdotes. Did you know, for example, that the golden lion on top of the Grosse Cloche is turned toward the river when the weather is fine? The Bordelais say this is because he is thirsty!
Whether as a couple, or with friends and family, a tour of the city in a little train is an ideal way to spend a convivial time discovering Bordeaux in an unusual way. So, all aboard!
