Burgundy Day Trip from Paris

Burgundy Day Trip from Paris

Leaving Paris by luxury coach, head east toward Burgundy (Bourgogne), one of the oldest wine regions in France. The first stop on your Burgundy day trip is a local wine cellar in the village of Chablis, famous for its Chardonnay. Sample a glass of this exquisite white wine and learn about this wine-growing area, where viticulture dates back to the Roman times.

Around midday, enjoy lunch at an excellent local restaurant (drinks at an additional cost).

After lunch, your day trip continues to the medieval village of Vézelay, (also known as "the Eternal Hill"), home to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Basilica of St Mary Magdalene (Basilique Sainte-Marie-Madeleine), a Benedictine abbey. Enjoy a guided visit of the basilica, which has attracted pilgrims from all over the world since the Middle Ages and is home to beautiful Roman and Gothic art, as well as supposed relics of St Mary Magdalene.

The basilica also has historical importance as the place where Richard I (Richard the Lionheart) and Philip Augustus met before heading to the Third Crusade. Today it is a famous starting point for pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. During your tour, your guide will explain the fascinating history surrounding the basilica.

Before returning to Paris, you'll have free time to explore the village of Vezelay at leisure. Take this opportunity to explore local cafes, try other Burgundy wines (at your own cost) or simply enjoy the scenic countryside.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Best thing we did in Paris. Chablis and Vezelay were amazing and it was great to escape from the crowds in Paris for a day. Our tour guide was superb and the bus ride was very smooth. Forget the Louvre, go to wine country!
