France Tourist Traps: 84 reviews and 46 photos
We spent half a day in St. Emilion on the way to Bordeaux (to fly to Paris). That was probably still a couple hours more than it merited. It's a beautiful place ~ I wouldn't deny it that ~ and there is an interesting tour of some sights around an underground church, but the church itself is closed for severe structural defects and there is no known re-opening date.
Unique Suggestions: It's very busy with tourists ~ business and pleasure. If you're buying cases of wine to take home, I'd recommend it for the town is filled with nothing but wine shops.
Fun Alternatives: Otherwise, stay longer in Bergerac (as I wished I had). :-)
