Vergisson with vineyards in Burgundy
Beaune is a pretty French town with many of its old buildings, fortified structures and walls still standing. One of the buildings to visit, besides the Hospice, is the Notre Dame de Beaune. The hub of town , the old part, is arranged about the usual square with fine restaurants, traditional type shops and wine taking center stage ensuring all the “must see” shopping and dining is within walking distance.
Probably the best aspect of this small town is that it has not succumbed to being an overrun tourist center though tourism is important. It is a town of wine, gourmet cuisine, and history – a microcosm of France at its finest.
