Getting around Beaune by public transport, taxi, bus or on foot

Getting around Beaune

The town of Burgundy can be easily explored on foot. Especially with regard to the small and intimate historic center.

Buses are preferable especially to reach the districts further away from the center.


Generally, for tourists, the visit of Beaune is limited to the area of ​​the ancient center, enclosed by the splendid city walls. Right here, the museums and places of greatest interest and appeal are concentrated: Hotel de Dieu, Wine Museum and others.

You can stroll on foot, among the splendid alleys and Renaissance buildings, stopping, from time to time, in one of the bistros, cafes, or boulangeries in the center.

Getting around Beaune by bike, on the other hand, can be an excellent solution if you want to get away from the historic center. Just past the city walls, at the beginning of Avenue du 8 Septembre 1944, you will find a bike rental agency
