Itinerary

After breakfast, decide which of the several local trains you want to take to return to Beaune. Your ride today is meant as a half day ride, allowing you time for a relaxing morning, and perhaps some final explorations of Tournus before you leave. Once you are back in Beaune, you can head out on a truly lovely ride, through five small villages, each with their own personalities. Stop if you like in Savigny-les-Beaune, to visit the lovely church with its 15th century fresco, or the castle with its odd collection of antique airplanes and motorcycles. The route winds around the base of the Corton hill, with its famous Grand Crus. We have you stop along the way for a real treat – a great wine tasting lunch, with several of their delicious wines to accompany the regional food!

An extra day in Beaune today, to explore the final “Must See”, the Route des Grands Crus north of Beaune, heading into the pretty villages and Grand Cru vineyards of the Cote de Nuits. The riding is easygoing, and you’ll be able to explore and taste along the way. Give homage to the Romanee Conti vineyard (one of the most expensive wines in the world) and stop in to see the monumental 15th century wine presses in the Chateau de Clos de Vougeot. Try the surprising rosé wines made in Marsannay, or the rich wines of Gevrey Chambertin, before hopping on the local train there to return to Beaune for your final night. We provide a Self guided walk of historic Beaune to help in your explorations, which brings you to the Hospices de Beaune, a 15th century hospital that is THE site to see in town. This incredible building has a wonderful history – we highly recommend a visit!

After a final delicious breakfast, your tour is over; you can catch the train in Beaune for easy connections for your further travels. Bon Voyage!
