Some of the main French roads go through the Burgundy region. The central Bourgogne is indeed served by a wide web of motorways and national roads which represents 6.4% of the national road network.
Thanks to its central position in France, the Burgundy region is a great place to take a break when driving to the south of France for holidays for instance. Why not just stop there for a few days and taste the outstanding local wines?
You will for sure enjoy driving on the well-preserved Burgundian roads. The French
