Cité du Vin, Bordeaux, France

On my first morning in Bordeaux I’d jumped on the tram out to the Cité du Vin, a museum devoted to wines. It was very interesting. I got in for free by buying a city pass which is a Bordeaux wide transport ticket as well as giving free or discounted entry to lots of attractions.

To get back to central Bordeaux I decided to take the ferry rather than the tram so I had about 45 minutes to kill.

There are a couple of restaurants in the museum – one cafe style and the other a little more formal. I chose the cafe.

For a quick lunch I ordered a croque-monsieur accompanied by a glass of local red wine.

For fast food the sandwich was reasonable, and the wine was decent.
