Private Sightseeing Tours
Dijon with Burgundy Bubbles
After collection from your hotel we
head to Dijon, capital of Burgundy and historic seat of the Valois Dukes of
Burgundy. It is one of the best preserved
medieval sites to be found in the middle of a modern vibrant city and we will
discover it together. Following the
‘Chemin de Chouette’, mascot of the city, we step back to medieval times and
discover the hidden courtyards of the great ‘hôtels particuliers’ constructed
between the 15 and 18 century. The magnificent ‘Palais des Ducs’ will be the
pinnacle of this tour.
Book this tour on a Tuesday, Friday or Saturday which are the market days and you will be able to take in the sights sounds and smells of a
traditional French market. Lunch is taken at leisure in this bustling beautiful city.
After lunch indulge in some
free time for shopping or enjoy an independent visit of the Museum of Fine
Arts, the best fine arts museum outside Paris.
On the way back to Beaune we will
visit Veuve Ambal for an initiation into the fabrication of Cremant (Burgundy
Champagne). The tour ends with a
comparative tasting of this local nectar, a worthy competitor to Champagne.
