Bergerac, in the heart of the Périgord Dordogne region, is an ancient and compact city, characterised by its elegant medieval and Renaissance buildings. Gourmet restaurants, street entertainment and the fact that the whole city can be explored on foot are all part of its charm. Bergerac is renowned for its wine, and a short trip to the outskirts of the city reveals a landscape of vineyards that produce some of the world’s finest vintages.
Bergerac is a small modern city that celebrates its long history. The picturesque old town is full of medieval half-timbered houses, elegant 17th-century houses and the city’s largest square, Pélissière Place. And do not forget the picturesque Dordogne river that flows peacefully through the city.
A gentle walk around the city will reveal interesting museums and other tourist attractions like the statue of Cyrano de Bergerac, the hero of Edmond Rostand’s famous comedy, and there are also plenty of street markets buzzing with activity. Then, of course, there are Bergerac’s restaurants, which come to life in the evenings.
