Arrival in Dijon and then in your hotel. After that you have the opportunity to explore the former hometown of the Dukes of Burgundy a bit closer. The gothic collegiate church of Notre Dame, the ducal palace with the reclining figures of the dukes, the impressive city palace.
Day 2 Dijon – Beaune 47 km
Via Marsannay-la-Côte we drive to Vougeot, to the famous Clos de Vougeot, once a winepress of the Cistercian monks. Lovely little vineyard streets lead you to Nuits-Saint-Georges, where a wine tasting awaits you. Then continue to Beaune. The city of wine and, above all, well-known for its Hôtel Dieu, the poor hospital of the 15th century. Opportunity for an evening stroll through the vibrant wine city.
Day 3 Beaune – Semur-en-Auxois 68 km
A must-have before you leave Beaune is the visit of the poor hospital of Nicolas Roland, if you have not already visited it on the day of arrival. The building is a masterpiece of Gothic. Leaving Beaune, head north over Savigny-le-Beaune and take a pretty valley out towards Châteauneuf. Châteauneuf is one of the hundred most beautiful villages in France and is picturesquely situated high above the Auxois area. You drive to the medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois.
Day 4 Semur-en-Auxois – Vézelay 78 km
Through the pastures and the village of Epoisses, famous for its cheese, you will reach one of the most beautiful valleys of Burgundy – the “Vallée du Cousin”. The cousin meanders dreamily through the romantic river valley. Then it’s through the lovely Avallonais, past natural hedgerows, grazing Charolais cattle to Vézelay. Before crossing the dizzying viaduct, overlooking the 17th-century Pierre-Perthuis Bridge. A magnificent landscape that leads to the eternal hill of Vézelay. Vézelay was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and its basilica with its Romanesque sculptural decoration is worth a long stay.
Day 5 Vézelay – Auxerre 68 km
Stroll through the picturesque streets, at half-timbered houses from the 15th and 16J. past, stopping at the picturesque clock tower and finally stopping in and around the elegant gothic Saint-Etienne cathedral or strolling a bit further to the St Germain abbey and visiting the crypt with its 9th-century stone paintings.
Day 6 Auxerre -Chablis 34 km
By bike, head towards Pontigny. You cycle through short forest tracks to the Cistercian church. She is one of the last witnesses of the great spiritual movement of the Cistercians. After the visit continue to the wine-growing area of Chablis. Stop for a wine tasting.
Day 7 Chablis – Montbard 62 km
Drive through the vineyards of Chablis before reaching the Canal de Bourgogne. The Canal de Bourgogne, with its beautiful course and its romantic nature, is one highlight on this route. An absolute must-have is the stop at the Renaissance castle of Ancy-le-Franc.
Visit and then continue to Montbard.
Day 8 Montbard – Chailly sur Armançon 57 km
Today’s cycling day will take you along historic sites. First, the Château Bussy Rabutin, then Alesia, César’s winning place over Vercingetorix in 52 before Ch. On the scenic towpath then begins the lock staircase of the Canal de Bourgogne. On 12 km 37 locks (!) Were set up, understandable that you hardly see any boats on this section!
