Tonnerre (Burgundy)

Tonnerre is a bustling town with many shops and restaurants, and is the gateway to the green and undulating countryside that characterises the Canal de Bourgogne.  Skirting the Chablis wine vineyards the Canal de Bourgogne meanders through green pastures and is studded with many historic towns and Chateaux. Opportunities abound to step ashore and to sample the excellent local food and wines.  The river Yonne is also accessable from Tonnerre and is perfect for those who also enjoy river cruising.
