Beaune, considered the wine capital of Burgundy, is located in east central France between Paris and Geneva. The town’s annual wine auction of the Hospices de Beaune is France’s primary wine auction, and Beaune is surrounded by some of the world’s most famous wine villages. Although Beaune is not traditionally a tourist town, but rather centres around the wine industry, it is nonetheless a fantastic place for a getaway with plenty to do and see.
Beaune is an ancient town with parts of it still showing architectural features that date back to the Roman, or in places in pre-Roman, eras and right up through medieval and renaissance periods to modern and contemporary features. About half of Beaune’s battlements and ramparts have survived in good condition, as has its moat, and the central ‘old town’ is relatively large. Beaune historically has a close association with the Dukes of Burgundy.
