Besançon is a city of art and history, dominated by the Vauban Citadelle, nicely nestled within the bends of the Doubs river. There are two ways to visit the city from your boat: either you follow the loop of the river for a sightseeing tour along the ancient wall or you go through the tunnel that closes the loop.
The Saone river is one of the most beautiful destination for river boat even though not the most well-known. At its start in Scey, the river is as narrow as a canal and miles after miles it gets wider. You will sail among forests and grasslands in a well preserved natural area. The place is the perfect location for a swim or to fish.
The Canal du Centre, ideally located, flows through the vineyards of Chalonnais and Beaune: Mercurey, Rully, Maranges and Montrachet are just on the river bank next to your Pénichette®.
Chalon-sur-Saône will enchant you. This burgundian town is worth stopping by for its history and its gastronomy. The medieval city of Tournus is also a must see thanks to its picturesque beauty mixing Mediterranean influence.
At the edge of Franche-Comté, the Saône reveals little by little its rich legacy in the heart of the countryside. In the east, the south part of the Vosges massif gives you an idea of the joys of the mountains.
Its navigable part flows through 200 km of a wild and charming area. The Canal du Rhône au Rhin, which accompanies and extends the Doubs, offers a varied navigation from still waters to natural flows.
