Lonely Planet's Top Experiences and Sights in France: Eastern France

There are two French regions in Southwestern France: Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.
Burgundy offers some of France's most gorgeous countryside: rolling green hills dotted with mustard fields and medieval villages. Brooding landscapes and inspiring hikes define the sparsely populated Jura Mountains. Extending along the Franco–Swiss border from Lake Geneva northeast to Belfort, these sub-alpine mountains lent their name to the Jurassic period in geology, when they formed. High up in the French Alps, it's enthralling to imagine the forces that shaped these colossal peaks. Explosive history slumbers underground in the Auvergne. This land-locked region was scorched by ancient volcanoes, which left behind chains of cinder cones and mirror lakes, overlooked by the razor peaks of the Massif Central mountain range.
These are the top experiences and sights in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, according to Lonely Planet.
