The guided version of the Permanent Tour!

Discover the themed visits
The Permanent Tour is a huge source of information containing material offering more than 10 hours of content. Although it has been designed without a particular route through the 19 themed zones, our teams have had a thought for those who prefer to be guided by designing a series of four themed visits adapted to who you are, what you want to see and how much time you have. So don't panic! Take one (or more) of the free leaflets available at the start of the permanent exhibition and let yourself be guided.
 

you can choose from the four following themed visits:

 
  • "The Essentials": make sure you don't miss the main areas

“The Essentials” themed visit is designed for those who want to get straight to the point and see all the Cité du Vin’s main attractions. It offers you a short tour lasting 1 hour 15 minutes through five different worlds (Wine Regions of the World, Wine and Civilisation, Wine and You, From Vine to Glass and Bordeaux) and nine unique themed zones: the World Wine Tour, the Terroir Table, the Gallery of Civilisations, the Trend Wall, the Buffet of the Five Senses, the Art of Living, All Aboard!, Wine Portraits and the Saga of Bordeaux.
