Feasibility of driving Paris - Beaune - Alsace - Luxembourg - Paris Loop?

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at renting a car for a whirlwind weekend in French wine country.

Let's assume that we will remain sober enough to safely operate the car.

Here is the proposed itinerary:
Land in Paris Orly at 6:30 on Friday night.
Immediately depart for Beaune (3 hour drive)
Crash in Beaune on Friday night
Tool around Beaune wine country for a couple of hours on Saturday, then drive 3 hours to Alsace.
Have dinner in Alsace region, stay there on Saturday night.
Tool around Alsace wine route for a couple of hours on Sunday morning (knowing that a lot of stuff is closed on Sunday -- don't have much of a choice) and then head to Luxembourg (3 hour drive again) on Sunday afternoon.
Either stay in Luxembourg Sunday night and get up at the crack of dawn on Monday morning to drive back to Paris, or head to Paris late on Sunday.

Phew! I know it'll be insane -- actually tasting the wine is just a bonus (after all, I can taste most of it in the US anyway); mostly I want to be there and see the countryside.

Feasible?

The main reason to hit Luxembourg is, admittedly, to cross the country off my life list. It's only about 90 minutes out of the way round trip if we're going from Alsace to Paris.
