Paris is undoubtedly the first destination people think of when someone mentions France. The capital’s global influence on culture is perhaps stronger than any other city’s, but there are other very worthy places of visiting. It can be hard to think of anywhere else, although many Provinces in France have recognizable areas too. From the flower-lined canals of Alsace to the scenery of the beaches in Provence there are many to choose from. But perhaps there is no province that is more luxurious than Burgundy. Not just a name that follows Ron and precedes a question mark, Burgundy is also one of the most gorgeous areas of Europe. From spas to golf courses to wine, this French region really presents visitors with all the greatest elements of culture that France has to offer. Below we outline the best things to do in Burgundy, France that also have a touch of class.

Cruise the Route des Grand Crus

The Route des Grand Crus is also known as Burgundy’s wine highway. Stretching from Burgundy’s capital Dijon north to Santenay, the 37-mile route passes seemingly endless wineries. Although the full road may not be extremely long, it does have plenty to see. It passes 33 small towns and the huge number of vineyards is thanks to winemakers here focusing on small batch quality wine, rather than producing mass quantities. It is obviously essential to makes stop at as many wineries possible. This is the moment you have been waiting for since taking those wine tasting classes. The most popular grapes here are pinot noir for reds and Chardonnay for whites. Clos de Vougeot is easily one of the most picturesque places in the world, not just amongst wineries. Just be sure to drink responsibly if driving or have a designated driver or beter yet go full luxury and rent a driver for the day.

A Taste of Medieval Living

Many of Burgundy’s well-maintained cities allows visitors to step back in time and imagine what living a luxurious life in the 1500s was like. Start off by visiting Dijon’s Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy. Currently, it serves as Dijon’s city hall and as an art museum but back in the day it was the seat of the Dukes of Burgundy, a former ruling class of the region. An equally remarkable architectural wonder in Burgundy is the Hôtel-Dieu Museum in Beaune. The intricately designed tiled roof looks unlike anything else. The building serves as a museum and reflects on its original purpose, a hospital for the poor. Sure that isn’t a castle for Dukes but it provides a contrast to Dijon’s pageantry to put medieval luxury into perspective.
