If you happen to love wine, you may want to set your sights on a destination vacation in Bordeaux, France. You can visit the La Cité du Vin, an amusement park and Museum where you can enjoy a day or more of what wine has to offer.
La Cité du Vin, which is translated as “The City of Wine” was officially opened in 2016 and it is sure to answer any questions you may have about the beverage. There are 20 different areas that are themed with immersive exhibitions that teach you about the winemaking process worldwide.
You might enjoy taking a helicopter ride that takes you to 17 countries in more than 20 winemaking regions.
There is also a simulated boat ride that shows how wine was transported by merchants many years ago.
You can also visit Belvedere for a 360° panoramic view of Bordeaux. It even offers a wine tasting.
