Arriving at Bordeaux Airport
Your flight will land at Bordeaux-Mérignac. As its name suggests, this airport is located in Mérignac, 12 kilometres from the centre of Bordeaux. You can get there quickly using:
- The bus: two options are available. Firstly, the 30Direct shuttle travels directly from the airport to Saint-Jean station, taking 30 minutes. There is at least one departure every hour, from 08:30 to 20:30 during the week, from 08:45 to 18:00 on Saturdays, and from 09:30 to 20:30 on Sundays. Alternatively, the Liane 1+ makes the same journey (in around 50 minutes), but with several stops in the city. There is one departure every 10 to 15 minutes, from Monday to Sunday, between 05:00 and 00:30.
- A taxi: available on the way out of the terminals.
- A hire car: around 10 car rental companies can be found in the area connecting Terminals A and B.
What to do in
Bordeaux doesn’t seem to suit its nickname: the Sleeping Beauty. As France’s leading city in terms of the number of companies created, and with the Rafale final assembly site and the CDiscount headquarters, the capital of Aquitaine is anything but sleepy. So why this nickname? Because Bordeaux is second only to Paris for the number of listed, protected monuments. And yet it is a vibrant city! Bordeaux isn’t happy just to have a glorious past. The city is moving forwards towards an equally glorious future, constantly enriching its heritage with innovations. This means it is not only the gateway to a magnificent region, but also its most wonderful asset.

What is the best time of year to visit Bordeaux?
Like all major French cities, Bordeaux is a great place to be all year round. Each season has its advantages: winter is the time of the Christmas Market on the Allées de Tourny, the irresistible sales in the 250 shops on Rue Sainte-Catherine, or the remarkable programme of the Grand Théâtre and the Théâtre National en Aquitaine. In spring, take your time strolling through the old town and along the banks of the Garonne. In summer, head to the coast for sun and sea, rest and relaxation on the vast expanses of sandy beaches. Autumn is great for exploring the vineyards, tasting their wines, and admiring the vines, which at this time of year take on the colours of gold, copper and… wine!
