Day 5: Beaune

This morning we awoke in Chalon-sur-Saône, the gateway to Burgundy. We departed from the ship on coaches and see the tiny villages of Meursault, Volnay, and Pommard; all well known for producing fine wines.

Nearby is medieval Beaune, Burgundy’s wine capital, where we enjoyed free time to explore. We will also learned more about the Burgundy Wines during a tour and tasting at a local winery. We then returned to the ship for a late lunch. This afternoon we continued our cruise towards Vienne.

Although I intended to NOT really shop, it’s inevitable to pick up some things that remind me of people back home. Today included a chocolate shop and some little girls who call me “Oma” came to mind as we breathed the heavenly aroma.
