Travel inspiration in Bordeaux and Brussels
Bordeaux, gateway to vineyards
Bordeaux is located in the heart of the Aquitaine region and is only 3 hours away by TGV from Paris. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, it is the epicurean French destination par excellence. Bordeaux has over a hundred thousand hectares of vineyards and 10,000 grape growers. The city produces large quantities as well as some of the most expensive wines in the world. From Bordeaux, you can take the train to Saint Emilion, one of the world’s most famous vineyards, or opt for a guided tour in a vineyard to taste one of the famous vintage wines of Margaux, Pauillac or Saint-Julien.
At the heart of Europe, Brussels, the capital of Flanders, provides an excellent base to explore this charming region – and beyond. Flanders is dotted with historical cities that are teeming with history and atmosphere. These Flemish cities exhibit their authentic charm with cobblestone streets, beguinages, pedestrian shopping streets, cathedrals and internationally renowned art. Brussels is easily accessible by train from Paris (1h22 trip), Amsterdam (1h13 trip) and London (2h10 trip).
Reviews & ratings Bordeaux - Brussels
To take this train we had to travel from Brussels Central to Brussels Midi. This was more difficult than anticipated, as we had trouble locating the correct platform and even the right train once we found our platform. A friendly off-duty policeman and another Belgium gentleman helped us. It would help if the train's number were placed on the information boards at the stations, not just the departure times and destinations. Once seated in the right train the journey was typical of the high standard of first-class TGV travel. The changeover at Lille Europe was easy.
