This newly revised Michelin Green Guide covers two regions in one volume. The plains, hills, and fields of Burgandy roll westward from the Loire to the celebrated vineyards stretching from Dijon to the southern hillsides of Beaujolais. Echoes of the Middle Ages are found in superb Romanesque churches and the heritage of the Great Dukes. The Jura mountains encompass deep forests, sparkling rivers, lakes and cascades, winter resorts ideal for cross-country skiing. Besancon and Belfort citadels reflect the struggle for supremacy over the eastern border of France, the historic Franche-Comte.
