About France

Once you reach Chalon-sur-Saone by train, you can discover the charming old historic district of the city with its half-timbering houses, towers, turrets and lovely little streets.

Chalon sur Saone is also equipped with fortifications from the 16th century and a sumptuous Italian Theatre. The Saint Vincent cathedral built from the 11th century is worth the detour because of its neo-gothic facade and its splendid cloister. On the City Hall Square, you will admire the Saint Pierre church in baroque style. If you’re a shutterbug, you should reach the Nicéphore-Niépce Museum, offering an interesting collection of contemporary pictures.

The Vivant-Denon Museum houses a large collection commemorating the archaeology, the decorative art, the History and the Fine Arts.

    "This was a local transfer to get to the fast train. All went well, platform easy to find, train left on time. Only thing to be aware of is there are three steps to get on the train. Can be tricky with bags by yourself. "
