Vacation In Beaune, France

By

Beaune is the capital of Burgundy in France. It is the one of the most important wine centres of France and is located amidst the most famous wine villages in the world. It takes only two hours to get here from Paris on TGV – the fastest train in the world. The exotic vineyards on both sides of the road could leave anyone flabbergasted and dumbfounded. The grapes in them are green around springtime and slowly turn yellow towards September as they ripen.

It is a medieval town with an ancient history. It is surrounded by a traditional wall that was constructed to protect it from invaders. Even though the town has the entire modern infrastructure, one can still see traces of cobblestones. The town is a host to wine lovers from all over the world who come here for wine tasting- be it red or white and wine auctions. The wine cellars here are very cold as they are made of chalk and limestone which is necessary for maintaining the aroma, sugar content, acidity and the color of the wine. Each wine type is different from the other in taste with respect to the nature of soil, its climate and exposure to the sun.

The famous light show is held between mid December to mid January every year and images are projected onto seven major historical buildings: the Hospices, the Chapel of Saint Etienne, the Wine Museum, the Rempart des Dames, the Clock Tower, the Porte Marie de Bourgogne and the Church of Notre Dame which help the tourists in exploring Beaune.

Visitors flock to the hot balloon rides which offer an unforgettable experience of viewing the vineyards from the sky. There are music concerts to keep the music lovers occupied.

Another place of interest is the famous Hotel Dieu which used to be a hospital for the wounded soldiers during wartime. But it now displays tapestries and altars built by wealthy families in the past. For those who wish to go shopping, there are the traffic free streets where almost anything and everything is available. One truly cannot have a better vacation than this.
