What to Expect
This tour takes you on a discovery of Burgundy, where you can visit the important landmarks and sample the local wine. You will visit the Hospices de Beaune, a former charitable almshouse founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, the chancellor of Burgundy, as a hospital for the poor. Visit the original hospital building, the Hôtel-Dieu, one of the finest examples of 15th century French architecture and now a museum.

You will enjoy an informative and relaxing wine tasting experience in a pleasant environment of La Table d’Olivier, which prides itself on its Burgundy specialties. Alongside a range of local dishes, you can taste up to 5 white and red wines. The English-speaking sommelier guides are more than happy to provide you with more information.

Visit the Abbey of Fontenay, one of the oldest Cistercian monasteries in Europe. Founded in 1118 by Saint Bernard in a marsh Burgundy valley, the abbey has not changed its magnificent Romanesque style. Except for the refectory which was destroyed, all the rooms have been perfectly conserved including the church, dormitory, cloister, council room, heating room, lodging for the abbots, and the forge.
