A boat trip along the Saône

Set off on a peaceful cruise along this beautiful river: drift past the surrounding landscapes, and you'll have time to observe them, reflect, and daydream. A real change of scenery as you prepare to pass through each lock, and meet other visitors or boaters along your way. 

Recommendation: bring your bike aboard the boat to be able to explore the surrounding area easily...
