We spent the morning strolling through the streets of the ancient center of the city. Above is the cobblestoned Rue Verriere, lined with medieval half-timbered shops.
After lunch we went to the Museum of Burgundian Life. The inscription on the little faience plate above reads "I will always be amorous with a bottle of old wine."
Entering through one of the narrow streets that opens onto the central Place des Armes.

The Museum of Burgundian Life is housed in a former Bernardine convent. Here is the lovely garden in the central courtyard.
A bottle of wine with dinner.
Later today we will drive down to the town of Beaune for some sight-seeing.
