Day Trips from Dijon

By Viator, August 2013

No reviews, be the first!

Dijon is probably not on every traveler's bucket list, and that's a shame. Its extensive park trails, half-timbered buildings and navigable city center is a wonderful contrast to the massive sophistication of Paris. And it's also a convenient base from which to explore the Burgundy region. Here are our recommendations for fun day trips from Dijon.

Burgundy Wine Tours

If Dijon makes you think of mustard and Burgundy makes you think of wine, then your day trips will probably revolve around the region's fantastic vineyards. The Côte de Nuits region is surprisingly little visited, which gives you free reign to discover the charming villages and back country roads that yield some of the world's favorite red wines. Visit the vineyards and cellars, and then have tastings before you buy directly from the producer.

Baume-les-Messieurs

This little-known town in the Jura very much earns its title as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France. Nestled in a canyon surrounded by 200-foot limestone cliffs, it is known for its beautiful residential landscaping, the thousand-year-old Baume Abbey, and a natural waterfall just outside the village that is a favorite with hikers.

Beaune

Another name that's not on the tip of anyone's tongue, Beaune is considered the capital of Burgundy wines. It's also a wonderful, pedestrian friendly town with a lively market; the
Beaune Hospices, a 14th century is still a working charity hospital but for visitors, its colored tile roof and lovingly maintained architecture are a photographer's delight.
