Lyon, Beaune, or Dijon as stopover from Antibes to Colmar?

Jump to last reply

We'll be driviing from Antibes to Colmar and have 2 nights on our itinerary along the way. We had pretty much settled on staying in Beaune and then I read posts suggesting that if you aren't there to visit the wineries and wine and mustard shops (which we aren't) there wasn't much else of interest, though we would like to see the hospice (Hotel Dieu). Many posters preferred Lyon (which seems large for a one-day visit) or Dijon. I just thought I'd ask for additional comments on the "virtues" and pros and cons of a one-day visit to Lyon vs Beaune vs Dijon. We enjoy wandering through "quaint streets," visiting cathedrals, and driving through pretty scenery.

If we base in Beaune or Dijon, would it be practical to visit one during the day and stroll through the other in the evening since they are close together? Or to make a quick stop in Dijon on the way to Colmar if we stay in Beaune?

Thanks for sharing your experiences and opinions!
