Situated close to the Atlantic coast, Bordeaux is famous for being the wine industry capital of the world, boasting a history of wine making that dates back to the 8th century. With a yearly production of more than 700 million bottles, this area provides both great quantities of everyday wine as well as some of the world's most expensive wines.
The old part of the city presents visitors an exceptional urban and architectural overall impression of the 18th century and has been registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Furthermore, Bordeaux is regarded as having the leading military space and aeronautics construction and research complex on the continent.
Tourism is a rapidly growing industry in the region and draws around three million visitors every year. Among the plentiful sights in Bordeaux is the Basilica of Saint-Seurin; created in the early 6th century, it houses an 11th century portico and a 13th century nave. Another highlight is the Sainte-Croix Church (Church of the Holy Cross) which was built in the 8th century and features a façade in Romanesque style.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
