You arrive at Beaune station from Paris. You were able to leave work at 17:00. Just enough time to rush to Gare de Lyon, and here you are, after only 2 hours on the train, at Gare de Beaune. You’ve barely had time to recharge your phone. No problem, you and your friends have booked an apartment just a 10-minute walk from the station. The Google Maps itinerary won’t drain your 60% battery. You receive a warm welcome at La Maison des Courtines, your rented apartment for the weekend. You’re famished and the Plateau Gourmand that awaits you is most welcome. Local cheeses and charcuterie go perfectly with a bottle of Burgundy, of course. With just enough time to eat, you’ll be able to enjoy the evening strolling through the quiet streets of Beaune town center. It’s a real pleasure to do it all on foot. You’ll discover the old stones and wander along the ramparts to easily find your way to the Hospices. At the Wine Sale and during the festive season, take time to watch thefaçade illuminated with the history of Beaune and the Hôtel-Dieu. It’s a grandiose spectacle that awakens your childlike soul. It’s a bit chilly, but you’ve brought the right shoes and parka. You quietly continue your visit to get to bed early, as tomorrow will be a long day.
