Let the collections at Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon and Hôtel-Dieu Museum Musée de l'Hôtel-Dieu capture your imagination. Wine Tours & Tastings and Palace of the Dukes are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Dijon: Beaune (Musee du Vin, Patriarche Pere & Fils, &more), Domaine Armelle et Bernard Rion (in Vosne-Romanee) and Olivier Leflaive (in Puligny-Montrachet). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Cathedrale Saint-Benigne de Dijon, do a tasting at Chateau du Clos de Vougeot, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and don't miss a visit to Place de la Liberation.

Specialty Museums · Wineries & Vineyards · Gift & Specialty Shops
Côte-d'Or is a premier wine-growing department in the Bourgogne (Burgundy) region that produces what are inarguably the world's finest, and definitely most expensive, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, from some of the most rigorously and painstakingly classified vineyards in the world. Many people attest that the abundance of monasteries in the department has been the reason for the vast and well-maintained viticulture. No matter what you believe, this abundance of monasteries means that there are many historical abbeys and religious attractions to visit between vineyard tours and wine tastings.
