Need some more information for your trip to Bordeaux?

Airport:

‌-Aéroport de Bordeaux - Mérignac

-There is no international airport in Bordeaux, you will most likely fly into Paris and then have a connecting flight to Bordeaux

Getting around the city:

-The main way to get around Bordeaux is by Tram. There are 3 lines that cover most of the city. It’s a really convenient, fast and beautiful way to move about the city.

-Tickets can be bought at each stop using the machines. 1 ride costs around 1.70 euros but you can purchase them in bulk as well.

-There are also buses and river shuttles.

-Cars are strongly not encouraged in Bordeaux city center. You can use the P+R system where you can park outside of the city at one of the tram stations and you can pay for your tram ticket and parking pass all in the same purchase.

Getting to/from the airport:

-There is a shuttle bus that goes directly from the airport to the Gare de Bordeaux St Jean (the Bordeaux train station) which is in the city centre. From there you can continue on to your accommodation.

-There is also the Lianes 1 bus line that goes to the airport from the city centre.

Want help planning your trip to Bordeaux? 

I consider France to be my area of expertise. I've lived here for 2 years and have traveled around many times to many regions! I would love to help you with your trip planning - let's make the most out of your trip! 

How can we make your trip EVEN BETTER? 

Curated recs are great if:

you know where you want to go, but don’t have the time or energy to research where to eat, what to do, or where to stay!

Custom itinerary is great if: 

you know where you want to go but cannot commit the time to planning and researching the logistical details. You can choose whether you want an in-depth itinerary or a trip outline!

Consultation calls are great if:

you want to chat face-to-face with someone who has lived in Europe for 4 years and can give you advice, tips, or even feedback on your itinerary. We can talk about everything and anything you need help with!
