Burgundy is easily accessible from Paris. The TGV train can whisk you away in fewer than two hours. Once here you'd be hard-pressed to find a better pinot noir! Beaune is considered to be Burgundy's wine capital. You'll spend four nights in the region's most luxurious hotel, a 5-star property with a Michelin-star restaurant. Spend a day with a local wine expert tasting your way through the Burgundy vineyards. There is, however, more to Burgundy than wine. Other days take you around gorgeous Beaune, to quaint medieval villages, by imposing châteaux, and to sample great food. These are the ingredients that make Burgundy a must-see and a UNESCO World Heritage Site!
