This is part of our 15 days Euro Trip.
After living amidst the city hustle-bustle in Paris, we wanted two relaxed days in the countryside of France and hence the choice to visit the Burgundy area. We chose Beaune (French pronunciation: [bon]) which is one of the important winemaking areas in France.
Fortunately, we reached here on Saturday and every Saturday Farmer’s market is set in the city centre. It’s one of the best things to experience in Beaune. Farmers from far across come with Fresh produce like olives, jalapeños, flowers, and other exotic produce. However, it closes by 2 pm (we didn't know that and reached when shops were closing)so one needs to plan well in advance to savour the regional taste it provides.
Wine is cheap here courtesy the fact that it is produced here. There are many wine tasting tours here starting from as low as €12!
