As much as all Parisians love Paris, they also adore a petit weekend—a getaway, either a day trip from Paris or an entire weekend. Recently, during autumn, I hightailed it out of the city for a wine-tasting trip to Burgundy. My friend Kelly and I headed for Beaune, which is perfectly situated to explore both côtes, Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. One can reach Beaune via train or car. The TGV train takes just over two hours to arrive there, and via car the trip is about three hours plus, depending on traffic. If you wish to take the train, you can rent bikes right in Beaune if the weather is fine. But there are some hills, so if you want to tour the entire region, you’ll need to either rent a car in Beaune or be in good biking shape....
