A Little Taste of Burgundy To Start Our 2016 Trip...Questions.

Jump to last reply

Bonjour. Yes, I know I haven't finished my trip report, but I am multi-tasking. Scary thought.

We are planning a trip to Burgundy, Provence and a splash of Languedoc next September (good time to go?). We will end up back in Paris where I will apologize to all the Parisians I got sick last year, and also buy Kerouac a bottle of wine.

If all goes according to plan (with us, always a question mark), we will land early at CDG, pick up a car and drive to Auxerre vis Fontainebleu (yes, I know I shouldn't be driving right after flying, but French coffee is strong).

My question...in my initial perusing of Burgundy sights, there seems to be a lot near the Auxerre/Vezelay area. For the four nights, would it be better to do three nights in Auxerre, and then travel to see Dijon and spend a night in Beaune (or Dijon) before traveling south to Provence. Or would 2 and 2 be better?

This will be my first of 1,000 questions, so please be patient. Merci beaucoup.
