Thomas Cook's Signpost Guides are designed to provide you with a comprehensive but flexible reference source to guide you as you tour a country or region by car. This guide covers the best of Burgundy and the Rhone Valley, from the Romanesque churches of Vezelay and Auxerre to the vineyards of Beaune, and from the big-city attractions of Lyon to the charming backwaters of the Brionnais, with suggested driving tours. You will find ideas for exploring on your own, detailed guides to sightseeing, activities, accommodations, dining and shopping. Attractions and areas are all rated to guide your personal choice.
