Chalon-sur-Saone tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Chalon is situated on the banks of the Saone right in the heart of the 'route de vin' from Beaune to Cluny.  It is here you'll be able to visit some of the most outstanding wine-making villages of the Cote de Beaune such as Santenay, Remigny and Puligny-Montrachet.

Chalon's port and riverside quarter is particularly pleasant and well worth investigating.  The Musee Niepce is also worth a detour and charts the success of Chalon's famous son Niepce who invented photography.
