Burgundy, France

The region of Burgundy is located just southwest of Paris, easily accessible from the French capital thanks to the high speed TGV train, modern highways, and a network of rivers and canals. The Saone River, the Canal de Bourgogne, and numerous other waterways provide a leisurely means for a river boat vacation. From behind the wheel of a rented boat you can glide along tree-lined canals, floating along at the pace of a brisk walk. Luxurious hotel-barges offer exquisite service, haute cuisine, and the best wines from Burgundy's many vineyards.

Dijon, FranceRegional cuisine includes the famous boeuf bourguignon, coq au vin, and garlicky snails. And who could forget that Dijon is synonymous with mustard!

Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is home to what have been called "the best wines in Christendom." Vineyards include Chamberlain, Pommard, Meursault, Chablis, Pouilly-Fuisse, and a long list of other well-known names.

The city of Beaune hosts an annual three-day wine auction that draws vinophiles from across the globe. The event is called "Les Trois Glorieuses" and is held in the Hospices de Beaune, a former charity hospital from the 15th century.

The medieval city of VĂ©zelay has much to offer history lovers. The Ste-Madeleine Basilica here was finished in 878. St. Bernard preached the Second Crusade from its pulpit, and in 1190 A.D. two kings (Richard the Lionheart of England, and Philippe-Auguste of France), met here to launch the Third Crusade.

The region's capital city of Dijon is also a delight. The city's Palais des Ducs, which is home to the Musee des Beaux-Arts, is often referred to as "Le Petit Louvre."

For a special treat, take a ride in a hot-air balloon to experience a bird's eye view of all Burgundy has to offer.
