Description

Set off on a discovery tour of Chalon sur Saône and its old town. Chalon came into being as the main port to the Eduens people during the Gaulish period and saw its glory days at the beginning of the Middle Ages as the Merovingian capital of Burgundy, and then again at the end of the same period as the site of famous international fairs. Joseph Nicéphore Niepce who invented photography was born in Chalon in 1765, one more reason to the town's fame. Today, Chalon is a city of Art and History, and as you wander around the Old Town you will be delighted by the half-timbered houses built between the 15th and 17th centuries, the restored facade of St Vincent's cathedral and fine classical mansions dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. Our visit will continue downtown with a tasting* session of some local wines. Return on board.
