The Moments to Live in Auxerre...
The canal du nivernais
Auxerre, surrounded by vineyards of Chablis, Chitry and Irancy is an ideal location to discover the great wines of Burgundy.
We can also arrange private tastings, tailored to your expectations (rare wines, organic wines...) at the Relais des Saints Pères.
A 2h course called "In the footsteps of Cadet Roussel" allows you to discover the streets and architecture of the city.
From April to September, the tourist office also proposes 45 minutes audio-guided tours of the city with the "Voyageur", a 7 seat electric car.
Streets and architecture
La Tour de l’Horloge (The Clock Tower), built on the ramparts of the Gallo-Roman fort in the fifteenth century, is located in the pedestrian area of Old-Auxerre.
The cloister of the Abbey of Saint Germain includes a prehistoric and Gallo-Roman museum and temporary exhibitions...
Place Saint Nicolas, patron saint of sailors, is another great place to enjoy the River Yonne and the architecture of the city.
There are over 350 shops in Auxerre, mostly in the heart of Old-Auxerre, including several best craftsmen in France.
Restaurants, terraces and shops
Walking along the 9kms of the Coulee Verte, you’ll enjoy discovering Auxerre from the old railway track. This 15kms long green corridor of the city will be finalized in 2015.
The Arbre Sec Park is also includes children’s playgrounds and a large lawn bordered by a beautiful botanical collection of trees and shrubs.
From March to October, we can organize quad trips, a funnier and sportier way to discover the vineyards of Chablis, Irancy and Chitry on unbeaten tracks!

On the way, stop at the prehistoric caves in Arcy-sur-Cure. With the Chauvet Cave, they have the oldest paintings known today.
