The Yonne

an introduction to Burgundy

From the wooded hillsides of Morvan, where its source can be traced, to the gentle plains of the Gâtinais, the River Yonne invites you on a journey to the heart of an iconic Burgundy. Culture lovers should not miss Sens and its gothic cathedral or the Cities of Art and History of Auxerre and Joigny. Are you a gastronome? The famous Chablis vineyards, as well as those in Jovinien, will delight your taste buds. The basilica at Vézelay, listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, is not far away. What an itinerary!
