Burgundy Culinary - 7 days

Day 1 - Arrival in BeauneYou start your cycle route in the wine town of Beaune. In its bastions are the 'caves' of the most important wineries. Beaune is sometimes called 'the pearl of Burgundy' for its rich urban beauty. Very well known here is the Hôtel de Dieu, the 15th century poor hospital, built in Flemish-Burgundian style. Day 2 - Beaune to Dracy-le-Fort - 47 kmThe first part you cycle today along the most famous wine villages of Burgundy, with Grand Cru wines as a sign. The many famous wineries offer plenty of opportunity to taste the majestic wines.
After Santenay you follow the towpath along the Canal du Center. The last part goes through a vast forest before you arrive at your hotel in Dracy-le-Fort, with an extensive spa and well-being.
Day 3 - Dracy-le Fort to Tournus - 45 kmSoon you will cycle on a Voie Verte, an old railway line that has been transformed into a cycle path. In Chalon-sur-Saône you cycle for the first time along the Saône river. You can now view the city, but you can also visit the city during your overnight stay in Chalon-sur-Saône. From Saint-Marcel you cycle over the Voie Bressane (also an old railway line). At Ouroux-sur-Saône you cross the Saône again and follow your route to Tournus via some quiet villages. Day 4 - Tournus to Cluny - 65 kmDuring this long leg you first follow the banks of the Saône south to Macon. This is the southernmost part of the famous wine regions of Burgundy. The famous Maison Bois and numerous terraces along the river are worth seeing. Then the route bends inland and you follow an old railway line (Voie Verte) to Cluny. A few kilometers before Cluny you will pass through the tunnel of Bois Clair (1.6 km long). Worth seeing is the Cluny abbey, founded in 910. This Benedictine abbey was the most powerful in Western Europe in the Middle Ages.Day 5 - Cluny to Chalon-sur-Saône - 55 kmThere is plenty of time to visit Cluny and in particular the famous abbey. After 11 km you will pass Taizé, a large ecumenical monastery community. You cycle the entire route over a former railroad track.Day 6 - Chalon-sur-Saône to Beaune - 48 kmThe first part, after leaving this city, you cycle along the Canal du Center. Then make the crossing to the river Saône, which you follow to the north-east, towards Verdun-sur-le-Doubs. You then leave the Saône to return to Beaune through a newly constructed cycle route through a beautiful nature reserve.Day 7 - Tour Nuits Saints Georges 47 km and/or departureThis tour goes to the famous wine town of Nuits Saints Georges. After a smooth start you cycle back through the famous Burgundy Côte de Nuits vineyards. Upon your return to Beaune, you will pass the famous Hotel Dieu, which is certainly worth a visit.
