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