The wealthiest province of France where its dukes used to challenge the power of the French monarchs. From the magnificent palaces in the city of Dijon, dukes and kings ruled the vast territories of Western Europe. They left behind the medieval cathedrals of Sens and Auxerre as well as the Romanesque basilica of Vezelay. Visit the world-famous wine route from Dijon, a gastronomic and cultural center and the Marché aux Vins in the wine capital of Beaune. Before your leave Burgundy, do not forget to buy a bottle of wine! Burgundy also has many other attractions to offer - such as scenic cycling tours, hiking trails, local wines and delicious cuisine to sample, and picnics in the countryside.
