No trip to Burgundy is complete without indulging in a wine tasting – or two or three. And one of the best ways to enjoy a wide variety of Burgundy vino is on a wine tour of the region. The Bourgogne Gold Tour, based out of Beaune, earns high marks among travelers for its knowledgeable guides that take travelers to picturesque vineyards and wine cellars with delicious vintages. Authentica Tours, based out of Beaune and Dijon, is another highly rated operator praised by past reviewers for its personable guides and educational tours. 

Since this is such a popular activity, it's wise to book your tour in advance of your travels. Keep in mind that rates for the various tours will vary widely, depending on the length of the tour, the number of wineries visited and whether you book a private tour or a group tour. For instance, Authentica Tours offers a tour through Côte de Beaune that costs 590 euros (about $750) for two people. The tour fee covers two or three tastings. Meanwhile, Burgundy Discovery – another popular tour operator – offers a one-day tour that starts at 230 euros (around $300) per person.

#1 Cathédrale Saint-Lazare d'Autun

The Cathédrale Saint-Lazare d'Autun, also known as the Autun Cathedral, was built in the 12th century as a Roman Catholic cathedral and storehouse of the relics of St. Lazarus. Of particular note are the works of art, including a tympanum of "The Last Judgement." The iconic sculptures, carved by Gislebertus in the Romanesque style, are equally engaging. 

Recent visitors said the Cathédrale Saint-Lazare d'Autun stands out among European cathedrals for its architecture and art. Along with the tympanum, travelers also appreciated the cathedral's stained glass and the way the cathedral continues to be used by the Autun community.
