Beaune, France is a charming village in the Burgundy region of France, just south of Dijon. Besides wine-making, Beaune is noted for its hospices (almshouses), the most famous and recognizable of which is the Hotel-Dieu. Note the distinctive colored roof tiles and the easy-to-walk, pedestrian-only streets. Residents decorate their homes and businesses with flowers which add to the charm.
Also in the Burgogne (Burgundy), a popular and worthwhile stop is Vezelay, whose Romanesque Basilica of Sainte Madeleine has lured pilgrims since its construction in the 11th century.
