Saint Emilion - France

Amazing roofs

Saint Emilion is a medieval city, 30 minutes from Bordeaux, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city life revolves around the wine culture. Almost everything in the city is related to wine and its culture: stores, gifts, chats, everything. While you walk from the train station to the city, you will see some farms, and depending on the season, see and smell the small grapes that will produce the famous wines of the region.

You don't need to worry about how to carry the bottles. If you want it can be delivered at your home (with extra fee, of course). It's easy to get lost with so many types, years, tastes, smells. 

The city is also very charming, with its narrow streets, and beautiful roofs. Just walk around and it will be easy to take lots of good photos. Enjoy.
