Visit Beaune, along the Wine Route
You'll need at least two days to visit the town of Beaune, or even longer if you plan on continuing your exploration in the Côte and Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. The Route des Grands Crus de Bourgogne (Burgundy Wine Route) then leads to the east, towards Nuits-Saint-Georges and Dijon or to the south, towards Saône-et-Loire.

This 15th-century hospital with flamboyant Gothic-style architecture and multicoloured roofing, shows the direct connections there once were between Flanders and the Dukes of Burgundy.
Inside, the unmissable rooms are the "Pôvres" room with the famous red canopy beds, the apothecary and the remarkable painting of the Last Judgement by Rogier Van der Weyden.Visit the Hospices
