In northern Burgundy on the banks of the River Yonne is the splendid city of Auxerre. A truly historic place to visit with the cathedral of Saint-Étienne d'Auxerre, the Place Saint Nicolas, the medieval clock tower half-timbered houses and narrow streets add a charm and inviting welcome.
The cathedral of Saint-Étienne dating from the 13th century is home to a unique fresco where Jesus Christ is pictured riding a horse.
Cruising down the river Yonne from Auxerre you will be able to join the Burgundy Canal. Whilst heading upstream you'll enjoy the very romantic and picturesque Canal du Nivernais.
