Beaune

On our way to Lucerne, we detoured to a small village, Beaune which is the wine capital of  Burgundy in the Cote d'Or department in eastern France. It is located between Paris and Geneva.




Beaune is an ancient and historic town on the plain, by the hills of the Cote d'Or. There are features from pre-Roman and Roman times, from antiquity, medieval, renaissance and modern times.




It is a walled city: about half of the battlements, ramparts, and the moat, remain in good condition. The central "old town" is extensive.





It also enjoys a good amount of tourism, but it is not primarily a tourist-driven town, as it is sustained by the wine industry.
