  • This is a must see in Beaune. You can reserve tickets online in advance, but if you're doing the "visite libre" (without a guide), you can buy them in the ticket office very easily. The first stop on....  more »
  • This was our second visit to the Hotel Dieu. We like it very much and the roof is beautiful. When we visited (early in the morning) it was very quiet which was nice.  more »

  • It is very informative. You can find many important things and a very good selection of languages for the audioguide, which are not too long and keep you into those times. Inside you can find many things that were used to heal people. It is recommended.
  • A very interesting place, full of history. There are audio guides in several languages with detailed explanations of the life of the sisters and the sick when the hospices were running as well as commentaries on the funding and maintenance history and architectural features of the place. There are plenty of places to eat and park all around in an overall very pretty town.
