    This is about the rest of the Roman arena, which is nestled between the classic buildings home. Directly to rujnám you. It's a nice place, but downright would not go behind this monument. However, if you are relaxing in a nearby park, it's a short walk and the journey is worth it.

    Interesting place to have a quick visit and read about some of the gladiator style events of the past. It's cool Bordeaux has kept this building as it's smack in the middle of a mainly residential area.

    A very interesting part of the city's history.

    Perfect place to read a book in a nice spring evening. Small but worth the visit, specially if you find yourself in the center of the arena.

    Incredible Roman ruins in city centre...

Where to stay in Bordeaux

Most hotels in Bordeaux sit conveniently located a stone's throw away from the train station. Look to Quinconces Square and Gambetta Square for high-end hotels. Those who prefer more budget-friendly accommodations may want to seek out a youth hostel--a relatively recent addition to the city. To secure a spot here, make sure to book ahead of time. In addition to hotels and hostels, choose from guest rooms in a typical Bordeaux house, or a family-friendly beachside campsite.
