TOURISM IN BURGUNDY

Famous for its prestigious vineyards, the Côte-d'Or holds a rich architectural heritage as illustrated by the Fontenay abbey, the city of Beaune and its famous Hospice, and the City of Art and History of Dijon, capital of Burgundy.

Department of water and greenery, the Nièvre invites the lovers of nature to discover the wild forests of the Morvan, lakes, ponds and streams, such as the Loire River and the Nivernais canal.

Located south of Burgundy, the Saône-et-Loire has a lot to offer with its 300 kilometers of waterways, its numerous Romanesque churches, its magnificent castles, its Voie Verte (car-free greenway) and its renowned gastronomic specialties such as the Charolais beef, the Bresse poultry and the Mâconnais wines.

Offering varied landscapes alternating between the famous vineyards of Chablis, the forests of Morvan, green meadows, hedged farmland and streams, the Yonne also boasts places of interest like the medieval old town of Auxerre, the Romanesque basilica of Vézelay, the Gothic cathedral of Sens and the Renaissance castles of Ancy-le-Franc and Tanlay.
