1 Cuisine

Gourmands, prepare to indulge – Burgundy has given us boat bourguignon, escargots, gougères, jambon persillé and many other delectable dishes; for some of the best food around, head to the Côte Saint-Jacques restaurant in Joigny.

2 Noyers-sur-Serein

Buried in beautiful countryside east of Auxerre, this stunningly unspoilt medieval town has the added bonus of an impressive museum.

3 Vézelay

One of France’s earliest UNESCO sites, this small village with the gigantic Romanesque basilica of Mary Magdalene features among Burgundy’s most historic locations.

4 Dijon

This affluent and cosmopolitan city is a great destination for a flaneur.

5 The Côte d’Or

Home to Burgundy’s most renowned vineyards, the towns and villages that line the road from Dijon to Beaune are full of possibilities for wine tasting.

6 Beaune’s Hôtel-Dieu

Topped by a myriad of glazed, multicoloured tiles, the medieval hospice at Beaune also houses Rogier van der Weyden’s Last Judgement.
