Burgundy and Alsace planning

Jump to last reply

I am starting to plan a trip to Burgundy and Alsace. I am having difficulty determining the best direction in which to travel. My thoughts are: fly to Lyon, spend two nights. Then get a rental car. Spend 3 nights near Auxerre, 3 nights staying between Dijon and Beaune, 1 night in Besançon (seeing the citadel there), and finally 5 nights in Alsace, taking a day trip or two to Strasbourg.
I must have read somewhere to take a train from Lyon to Maçon and pick up rental care there. Is this a good idea? Or is it no problem to drive out of Lyon? I also plotted this trip starting in Strasbourg. Perhaps it is 6 of one and half a dozen of the other…?
Finally, the best way to return to USA? I believe the only option from Strasbourg is to take a train to Paris. I imagine this would have to be the day before our return home flight.
Any suggestions are most welcome. Thank you.
