Burt starts his trip in Paris France. Then cruises to Beaune for their famous wine auction and a visit to a 700 year old hospital that has become one of the great architectural landmarks of France. Next we tour the Chateau De Cormatin in Tournus which was built by the finance minister to a king of France. It was good to be king and perhaps even better to handle his money. Then to Lyon once the silk capital of Europe. Lyon is also the town where modern French cuisine was invented.
