Beaune - The Walled City
Beaune is in the Côte d’Or department of the Burgundy region.
Beaune is the wine capital of Burgundy, and was also the capital until the Dukes moved to Dijon. This unique walled city is rich with history, wonderful hotels, great food and some of the world’s best wine.
The city’s historical buildings will bring you back in time and provide a realistic view of the walled city’s past. The old Hospice building still stands and has spectacular blazed tile roofs and sits in the middle of the city.
There’s as much history above the streets as below the streets. With miles of wine cellars below the streets, wine tasting venues bring the regions best wines directly to visitors.
For the lover of food, wine and history – Burgundy during “crush” is the place to be.
Some of the world finest wines are produced in this historic region and the lifestyle has not changed much in centuries.
