BORDEAUX

Regarded as the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux is an exciting destination for many reasons. Located on the banks of the Garonne in south-west France, Bordeaux was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2007 in recognition of its cultural riches and legacy. 

You can wander through the iconic columns of the Grand Théâtre; sample vintage wines at the Cité du Vin; enjoy the local speciality canelé cake; visit the impressive Place de la Bourse or take in the reflections of the Miroir d’Eau, the largest reflecting pool in the world.  

Bordeaux has been the venue for many major sporting events, including Rugby World Cup 2007 and UEFA Euro 2016. Many more memories will be created during Rugby World Cup 2023 at the brand-new, ultra-modern Stade de Bordeaux, the largest sports arena in the south-west of France. 

BAYONNE

The home of MSG’s French offices in the Basque country boasts everything to love about a quintessential rugby-loving coastal destination. 

Unashamed fierce rugby rivalry with neighbouring Biarritz makes a stay in this city a truly intoxicating sporting experience.   Rugby is the talk of the town where its stadium and sports complex sit atop the main boulevard exiting the city centre. 

Tourists wishing for experiences outside of the oval ball game are treated to the beauty of its surf-styled beaches, rugged Pyrenees mountains and easy access to the Spanish Basque cities such as San Sebastian and Bilbao.  Be sure to enjoy a day at a cider farm for lunch and a tour of how this unique flavour is created and revered worldwide. 

NICE

Recognised as one of the most beautiful cities in France, Nice – the capital of the Côte d’Azur- is in the French Riviera between the Mediterranean and the Alps.   

With 300 days of sunshine on average per year, there is no bad time of the year to visit Nice, a city loved by both tourists and the French alike. Try the Mediterranean gastronomic specialties of Nice, pan bagnat, pissaladière or socca in one of the small restaurants hidden away on the typical narrow streets of the city or on the piazzettas.  

With its Italian influences and its famous Promenade des Anglais, the city is full of Mediterranean character.   Boasting the success of a UEFA Euro 2016 host, Nice is ready for another international celebration during Rugby World Cup 2023, showing off its new stadium that prides itself on being one of the most environmentally responsible in Europe.
