Downtown Bordeaux, the Cathedrale and the Tower is just amazing. Take a ticket and climb to the top of the Pey Berland Tower. You will have an amazing view of the city
Climbed the spiral staircase to the viewing area not quite at the top and got up enough nerve to walk out and take some great photo's. Afraid of heights but still managed.
