A very shallow water feature that children love to play in.

Overlooking the river this central location is filled with families with children enjoying the open air.

Place de la Bourse is a beautiful place in Bordeaux, where you can sit, drink a coffee and enjoy the view.

This beautiful wide square is probably the most well known spot in Bordeaux between the Garone river and the city. A nice long Mirror fountain stands in the middle and reflects the buildings and lights.

Our cruise ship docked about 100 yards downstream from Place De La Bourse, which is the centrepiece of the modern city waterfront. This area has been redeveloped during the last couple of decades and offers a wide promenade adjoining the Gironde River, with road and Metro tram access adjoining.

This is one of those take it or leave it type of areas. We came for the architecture and the photos, and for that, and a bit of history it is interesting. However, your visit will be short, and it is only worth visiting if you are already passing through.

It's an impressive building to see and looks even better lit up at night but don't expect to see the reflection in the water mirror unless it's a dead calm day with perfect lighting

There no way to miss the most beautiful and recognizable place of the city. Just visit it during the day or the night and if it is possible I recommend to visit the place twice (day and night). Your are not going to lose your time, because the place looks different, the atmosphere is different and the "visitors" are different.
