Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a very impressive arc de triomphe, a gate into the older part of town. You will want to find the right place to take a photo and that is about it.

This was the "main entrance" for the common people to enter the city many years ago as opposed to the "Calihau" entrance used by commerce for goods coming into the city.

Triumphal arches are very French and are scattered all over the country. Bordeaux has one, at Quai Richelieu on the Garonne River, at the foot of the Pont de Pierre/Stone Bridge. A gateway into the medieval city walls, the Porte de Bourgogne marked the start or end of the road to Paris, now Cours Victor Hugo. The arch is a later embellishment, designed in 1750 by Andre Portier and dedicated in 1757 by the Duke of Burgundy. It is now a classified historic monument. It is on the map as a busy road intersection and tram stop.

This stone arch was uilt in 1757 - it was the official entrance to the city on the old road from Paris. If you come by Pont de Pierre from the right bank of Garonne river, the Porte de Bourgogne is straight ahead when leaving the bridge.

Another historic landmark built in the 1750's in Roman Style. It is the Gateway to the historic old town. It began as the Road to Paris...now named Cours Victor Hugo. As we enter it is a whole different part of Bordeaux...a bit run down.

It's definitely impressive in size. Looks like most of the arches throughout France. This one is located in an intersection so it was hard to get really good photos. Definitely one of the better preserved arches in France. I totally recommend seeing all the arches and clock tower too.

People on bikes, pedestrians and cars rush into the large Avenue Victor Hugo around the ancient gate. The shops in the first few blocks are dominated by Moroccans selling mainly household items to other compatriots, also some of their local leather products, babouches, bags. The discount fabric shop chain Toto has two outlets here with a bargain basement to make interesting finds among the remnant pieces sold by weight.

Another well preserved gateway within the city of Bordeaux. Fine example of olden times and well preserved.

We did a two hour drive from Biarritz to Bordeaux, France for lunch and some sightseeing. It was worth the trip. Of course, I picked up a bottle of Bordeaux Wine while in Bordeaux. Driving from Biarritz to Bordeaux was much like driving across I10 in the south, flat and LOTS of Pine Tree Farms. Bad drivers, crazy parking, tolls and construction is universal. Had the Fiat flying down the interstate at 130
