Chalon-sur-Saone, let yourself be tempted by Burgundy

About France

Once you reach Chalon-sur-Saone by train, you can discover the charming old historic district of the city with its half-timbering houses, towers, turrets and lovely little streets.

Chalon sur Saone is also equipped with fortifications from the 16th century and a sumptuous Italian Theatre. The Saint Vincent cathedral built from the 11th century is worth the detour because of its neo-gothic facade and its splendid cloister. On the City Hall Square, you will admire the Saint Pierre church in baroque style. If you’re a shutterbug, you should reach the Nicéphore-Niépce Museum, offering an interesting collection of contemporary pictures.

The Vivant-Denon Museum houses a large collection commemorating the archaeology, the decorative art, the History and the Fine Arts.

    Travel by Train - it’s great |
    "Excellent, efficient way to travel in Europe. Great connections and good value for money. Especially recommended for people travelling with only a 20 inch (European size limit) carry on bag. Large suitcases don't fit well and are a hindrance to everyone. "

  • ok |
    "Nice "

  • Running for the TGV |
    "The biggest problem is that the platform the train will arrive at is shown on the board only 15 minutes before the train's scheduled departure. This makes it difficult for the elderly to reach the platform in time - especially if they have heavy suitcases. The TGV has lost all appearance of glamour. It needs a make-over. "
