Tour around Burgundy
« BURGUNDY : FROM THE GALLO-ROMANS TO THE DUKES OF BURGUNDY, A TOUR RICH IN HISTORY AND FLAVOURED WITH WINE »
6 days – 5 nights
Located 3hrs drive from Paris, Burgundy is one of the key regions in the history of France : a pivotal area since Gallo-Roman times, cradle of the power of the Dukes of Burgundy, a region with many castles, abbeys and important pilgrimage sites, for the most part in thickly-forested areas.
As you tour the area, you’ll see these places with their rich history whilst also having the time to explore the Burgundian landscapes. Nature parks, limestone plateaux, agricultural plains and wine-growing valleys : each stage will give you an understanding of the link between history, geography and gastronomy.
In this way, you’ll make the acquaintance of the great wines of Burgundy : Chablis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot, Chassagne-Montrachet…these little wine-producing villages will hold no more secrets for you !
Are you ready to explore the wealth of Burgundy’s history, scenery and gastronomy ?
Go for it : the Burgundy region certainly lives up to its reputation !
During your tour, you’ll see the variety of landscapes which Burgundy possesses : the forests of the Morvan Natural Park dotted with small, unspoiled lakes, limestone cliffs, wooded hills, the old massifs and of course, the vine-covered slopes with their ideal exposure to the sun…the Burgundy wine road lies open before you !
Le Morvan Lake
Your tour of Burgundy will give you the chance to explore the key moments in its history. From prehistory to Antiquity, from the foundation of the Kingdom of Burgundy in the year 880 and from its development until our own times, you can’t fail to admire these majestic sites which have come down to us from another era.
Palace of the Dukes of Dijon
The Hospices de Beaune
An undeniable charm
It only remains for you to explore, during a lunch break or while taking a bike ride along the Canal de Bourgogne, the character of the little villages so dear to the Burgundians’ hearts …. of whom I am one, and very proud of the fact !
