1. Visit an ultra-modern wine museum
You can’t miss La Cité du Vin. This museum on the banks of the River Garonne is one of the city’s architectural showstoppers, with curves that mimic a drop, a vine, or a carafe, depending on your interpretation. Launched in 2016, the museum is a love letter to wine from every area and era imaginable. But it’s not the corkscrews and ageing Gothic script you might expect – here everything is super modern. You’ll learn about history, wine-making practices, and grape varieties through interactive screens, videos and games. The visit ends – of course – with a drink on the 8th floor, and with a view over the whole city. Look out for the themed tasting workshops on Thursday evenings. Santé!
