3 hours (or less) from Paris: Tasting Alsace #1


Once part of Germany, magical Alsace, with its storybook towns of half-timbered cottages, wines, and hearty cuisine, is one of France's most beautiful regions.

On this post-New Year's Day visit we headed for medieval villages Éguisheim, Riquewihr, Kaysersberg and Colmar with its "Petite Venise" in the Krutenau quartier.
