Epicure's temptations in Burgundy

Total distance : 370 miles | Average daily distance : 75 miles

Start city : Auxerre | Ending city : Mâcon

A lot of people just drive through Burgundy to reach the Alps or the south of France but at Triptailor, we feel it's worth stopping over and recommend you visit the area. Why visit Burgundy? Because it is a very hospitable region, where the food is exquisite and where some of the best wine in the world is produced. You could start with Auxerre and move on to the Chablis Vineyards. Continue your tour with the town of Avalon and visit the incredible basilica of Vezelay, which, as a masterpiece of romanesque architecture, has become part of UNESCO's World Heritage. You'll drive across the green hills of the Morvan Regional Park on your way to Dijon and its colored roofs. And then, it's off to the wine trail up to Beaune and its Hospices, through Clos Vougeot and Nuits Saint Georges, Puligny-Montrachet... It would be a shame to miss this one !
