Leave your car here…
Important to know if you come by car :
Due to the renovations in Bordeaux, there are now many underground car parks which can be quite expensive ( around 25 euros per day ).
Parking in the road is limited to 2 consecutive hours on a parking meter in the medieval quarter, so not an ideal solution for your visit!
OUR ADVICE TO YOU : leave your car in our local area where the parking is free and take the public transport around town
