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

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

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