1.1 Why Burgundy?

DK Travel Guides

Burgundy is France’s richest province – historically, culturally, gastronomically and economically. This lush kernel of a once great power possesses a concentration of unique Romanesque architecture in Fontenay and Vezelay, along with some of the world’s most venerated wines. Dijon is a must for lovers of art, architecture and food.


New York Times


Each year the New York Times publishes a list of 52 must-see travel destinations.
Their list for 2015 placed Burgundy at #15. The only other French inclusion was Ile-de-France at # 42.

Adelaide at # 25 was the only Australian city to be included.


Burgundy's central location within France and indeed, within the whole of Western Europe, makes this an ideal French or European travel base.
