Sweet French Village: Semur-en-Auxois

Not too far from Dijon you’ll find the quaint medieval village of Semur-en-Auxois. Built on a bluff and more than half encircled by the Armançon river, Semur-en-Auxois makes for a wonderful day of wandering cobblestone streets and tasting the delicious food and wine of the Burgundy region. 

Highlights of the town include the beautiful Gothic church La Collégiale Notre-Dame, remnants of a fortified castle, city ramparts, and the ancient bridges you’ll cross to enter the village.

Doesn’t it seem straight out of a fairytale?! 🙂

There’s no train station in Semur, but there are buses from Dijon available. If you are planning on driving, keep in mind that many streets are pedestrian-only.
