By rail :

The TGV network gets you here in no time at all (Paris-Dijon : 1 hr 40 min.). There are several trains a day and TGV trains go to a number of cities in the region: Dijon, Montbard, Beaune, Chalon-sur-Saône, Le Creusot/Montchanin/Montceau-les-Mines, Mâcon-Loché, all of which have connections to local places of interest. From July 2nd to August 27th inclusive, the daily TGV service from Nice to Dijon will also stop at Beaune. So the Burgundy wine capital is now only 1hr 20 min. from Lyon, 2 hr from Valence, 3 hr from Marseille and 4 hr from Toulon.

Dijon also has direct TGV links to Disneyland-Paris, Charles de Gaulle airport and Lille (where you can connect to the Eurostar service to London and the Thalys service to Brussels). There are also TGV links to Switzerland (Zurich, Bern, Lausanne, Geneva) and links to the South of France (Marseille/Montpellier-Dijon : 3hr). There are also a number of regular main line services that cross Burgundy leaving from large French and European stations. For shorter trips the excellent TER (regional) service, with its fast and comfortable trains, is an excellent and environmentally friendly way to explore Burgundy.
The www.ter-sncf.com/bourgogne website has a number of suggested train trips in its "Bons plans" section.
