Skip-the-Line La Cité du Vin Ticket

    What to Expect
    With this skip-the-line ticket to La Cité du Vin in Bordeaux, the way you spend your time is up to you. Because you get to bypass waiting in huge lines packed with people, there’s more time to enjoy the site and all it has to offer.

    Admire the museum’s modern outdoor architecture before heading inside to take advantage of the exhibits. Learn all about wine culture and dive deep into certain interests as you stroll along through more than 20 different wine-themed areas. You can follow an interactive guide on a hand-held travel device, or just travel through reading information at your own pace.

    After you’re done, go up to the eighth floor to the Belvedere. Get a tasting with your admission ticket of a world wine, and then decide if you’d like to purchase a glass or two of wine (own expense) while you relax. See 360-degree views of the city on this floor — the room has floor-to-ceiling glass windows all the way around.

    A great place with huge amounts of information and funky headsets and electronic devices to be able to listen to what you want. Could have spent hours here. Great to finish off with a tasting and the views were great of the city.

    Nice, but when it is crowded not much fun because a lot of the interactive displays are occupied. In summer too busy. Plan ahead for the workshops

    There were too many people there to enjoy visit. You are only skipping the line outside that leads to the line inside to get tickets. There are crowds and lines for every station and also the elevator to get your glass of wine, and another...More

    Crowded disorganized mess. Logistical nightmare. Be prepared for amusement park-level queues, primarily because the staff cannot get routing right. Be also prepared to queue up for at least 10min to get a glass of mediocre wine. Spend EUR20 on 1 ticket, but all I wanted...More
