|Board the barge moored in Dijon’s Port du Canal, where your cruise through Burgundy begins. A champagne reception welcomes you on board and gives you a chance to meet the crew. Later that evening, experience your first dinner on board.|
|Cruise to Longecourt, Visit Château de Longecourt|
|This morning enjoy your first cruise on the canal. Once moored in Longecourt visit the Chateau de Longecourt which has been owned by the same family since 1631. It has been beautifully decorated through the centuries and is rich in history. Some ‘graffiti’ can be found in the stables, left behind by the American pilots who stayed there during World War II. If the Count is in residence, he will give you a personal tour of his property.|
|Visit Dijon, Cruise to St. Jean de Losne|
|After breakfast, enjoy a walking tour of Dijon including a visit to the market, the Grey Poupon mustard shop and the Ducal Palace. There will be some free time for shopping or perhaps to sit in one of the numerous pavement cafes and simply just watch the world go by. Return to the boat for lunch and an afternoon cruise to St. Jean de Losne, the barging capital of France. Take some time this evening or early tomorrow to stroll around the port and see the many working and pleasure barges. Cycling Option: This afternoon there would be approx 20 km ride to St Jean de Losne from Longecourt. There are a few bars and restaurants in St Jean, many facing the river Saone.|
|Visit Beaune, Cruise to Chalon-sur-Saône|
|Continue to cruise the peaceful valley of the River Saône downstream to Seurre. Today, lunch is taken at the famous Relais & Chateaux hotel at Levernois. In the afternoon, discover Beaune, the capital of the wine region of Burgundy. Enjoy a visit to the famous Hôtel-Dieu, Hospice de Beaune and a wine tasting. Later, your guide takes you on a walking tour of the pedestrian area in Chalon-sur-Saône, the last of the Burgundian style river towns. Cycling Option: The distance between St Jean and Beaune is approx 40 kms, so a longer ride into Beaune for keen riders. After lunch and the tour, transfer to Chalon sur Saone in the minibus.|
|Cruise to Rully, Visit Château de Germolles|
|The barge cruise leaves the River Saône by clearing the lock to enter the Canal du Centre.
