If you’re a wine connoisseur, head to Auxerre, France, a pleasant town situated on the River Yonne. It is in the Burgundy region of France and near the town of Chablis, home of the so-named wine often referred to as “liquid gold.” Auxerre has a relaxed atmosphere with interesting shopping and casual restaurants. Start your visit on the Quai de la République, where the old town begins. From there, walk through the narrow, cobbled stone streets lined with half-timbered houses. The Tour de l'Horloge, a magnificent sundial, leads into the pedestrian shopping area. Stroll along the leafy boulevard on the banks of the river where you can people watch while sitting at one of the terraces of the cafes and restaurants. On Tuesdays and Fridays, the market is located in the market hall off Boulevard du 11 November. On Wednesday, the market is in the city center on Rue Draperie. A relaxing and romantic way to end your visit to Auxerre would be to take a boat trip on the L'Hirondelle which departs from the Quai at 3:00 pm and also at 10:30 in July and August. Take a look at the list below for accommodation options!
