There's still significant rainfall in Bergerac in March; around 70mm on average. Visitors can expect about 15 days of precipitation during this month, and the cool temperatures mean it can often be rather frosty.
Those interested in one of Bergerac's biggest exports should check out the Tobacco Museum. Located in a renovated 17th Century hotel, the museum is worth a look if only to check out the mix of renaissance and classical architecture. The museum showcases different tobacco pipes, and allows visitors to experience the various smells of many types of tobacco. It's a very important museum in the region, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. If travelling with little ones, or visitors with asthma, beware that this is the only museum in the area where smoking is permitted.
For dining with a view, enjoy dinner at LaTourdesVents. Located on the top of nearby Monbazillac Hill, Monbazillac castle, the surrounding vineyards and the Dordogne River can all be seen from this spectacular viewpoint. The restaurant received a Michelin star in 2010 and offers a choice of over 400 wines.
