Will you have a car?
If you want to see a little more of Burgundy, you could travel to Beaune, Chalons sur Saone or Macon in less than 2.5 hours or to Lyon a bit further south. However, you don't say where you are joining your canal boat and so you may be backtracking.
Thanks for your reply Pamjo.
We weren't thinking of hiring a car as we were going to get around by train and buses. But, if you think that we will be missing out with not having a car, then it is something that we could consider.
We are starting and ending our short 4 day canal trip at Migennes.
We are visiting Paris for a couple of nights before the trip and taking the train from there. After the trip we will have a couple of days in Burgundy before travelling to Vienna (for a 10 day tour.) Would it be best to return to Paris to fly to Vienna? Or fly from somewhere else in France. The train from France to Vienna looks like it may take too long?
Appreciate all advice - thanks.
Thanks for info. I have been looking at other towns/villages in Burgundy. Is there a place that you can recommend please, that would be good to fly out of and visit for a couple of days?
