Bordeaux by tram represents the best choice you can make once in this nice ville de France. You can easily move from one part to the other of Bordeaux in less than 35 minutes. Basically there are 3 lines (a fourth one is opening in few months – D ).
The two major lines (A and B) met in one single point – exactly in the city center. The arretr (stop in french) is called Hotel de Ville. If you stop here you can easily change from the line A to line B and viceversa. It’s quite simple : only 1 minute walking – you need just to change side! The Line C (indeed) is quite far from this point – You can catch the line C on the river side. I would recommend to travel on these two major lines because the top 10 attractions of Bordeaux lie on these stops.
TRAM A Bordeaux – What to see ?
On the Tram A you will find the Hotel de Ville – basically this is the hall of Bordeaux – there is a big huge tower with a superb cathedral! (St. Andre). If you come by Christmas you will find a really high Christmas tree. Another station I recommend on the Tram B is St. Catherine – Stop here if you like to go for shopping. You will find here the longest street with plenty of shops! Another stop is place du palais – excellent and nice SPOT where to take lot of photos with your family! It’s a must !!!
Along the Tram A Bordeaux there is another stop where you should “arretr” (learn french!). Jardin Botanique! Lovely place where you can sit in front of many plants of every kind. Walk, sit down, relax, ENJOY! Bordelaise people usually come here by saturday / sunday. If you are here during the summer time – you’ll find a nice Jazz club. Ask to the local!
