Why you'll visit Burgundy during the Rugby World Cup

If you’ve ever travelled to a Rugby World Cup before you’ll know that it’s always a fantastic opportunity to spend some time getting to know a country. And with 2023’s Rugby World Cup being played in France, the world’s most travelled to country no less, there are few better, more interesting or more peculiar countries to explore.

And while you're in France there’s probably one region that, regardless of what team you support, you'll end up travelling through.

Plan on following England around? That means you’ll have to travel from Marseille to Nice and then on to Lille.

A Scotland fan? Then you’ll take the first game against South Africa in Marseille before making your way to the (likely) pool decider with Ireland in Paris.

Maybe a kiwi? First the big match against Les Bleus in Paris then head down to see them play a resurgent Italy in Lyon.

And what do all of these itineraries have in common?...

You’ll have to travel through Burgundy!

But this blog won’t be a haughty, high-culture jaunt through museums and art galleries.


The Pinot Front Row likes his Guinness just as much as any fine Burgundy red.
