This route winds it way southeast from Paris to another of France’s major cities, Lyon. In the process, the road makes its way along the edge of the Burgundy region, a famous wine-growing area. A photo album will follow tomorrow.
Paris – The "City of Lights" is probably the most romantic city in the world. Paris’ great museums and numerous mega-attractions make it an important destination for all.
Fontainbleau – This former hunting lodge became one of the most famous chateaus in the world, because it was a favorite of Napolean.
Auxerre – This city, on the periphery of the Burgundy Region is known for its beautiful cathedral
Beaune – Another town in Burgundy, Beaune’s most famous sight is the Hospices de Beaune, with its distinctive tiled roof. The town is pleasant to stroll through and has great charm.
Lyon – This large city in central France has a reputation as a culinary center. The city is also a World Heritage Site because of its significant architecture. The white Cathedral is particularly striking.
