Burgundy Cruise

7 days with SITA  Rating: First Class

River Cruise Itinerary
Day 1 - Paris - Dijon
Travelling from Paris, we greet Dijon where we step on to our private barge with the crew waiting to welcome us. While it's all hands on deck for them, there's a cocktail and delicious dinner to make us feel at home. And with that, our cruise is underway. (D) 
Day 2 - Dijon - Petit Ouges
Back on dry land, this morning we enjoy a leisurely drive through a rural idyll, where row upon row of vines and honey-stone villages will have us thinking we've slipped inside a romantic landscape painting. This is Burgundy. And when in Burgundy, it's only right that we visit a historical icon of wine production. On our barge once more, we depart for Petit Ouges. On this tour, travelling to our destination is just as wonderful as arriving, especially with the green and pleasant landscape of the Saône Valley rippling around us. As we go, we'll enjoy both lunch and dinner on board. (B,L,D) 
Day 3 - Petit Ouges - Saint-jean-de-losne
Simply sit back in luxurious surrounds and take in some of France's most sublime wine country, relishing lunch in between. We arrive in Saint-Jean-de-Losne late in the afternoon - which allows time to take a walk or ride along the bike path before dinner at a local restaurant. (B,L,D) 
Day 4 - Saint-jean-de-losne - Dole
Waking on the water, we leave our barge moored alongside the riverboats lining the banks of Saint-Jean-de-Losne to saunter around its pretty streets. We soon discover it's boating heritage and characteristic Saône Valley buildings. Back on the barge as we cruise to Dole, our afternoon destination where we share a meal at a local restaurant. (B,L,D) 
Day 5 - Dole - Ranchot
Before setting sail once more, we take some time to explore Dole and its charming town centre. Lunch brings us back to our barge, then it's off to Ranchot. But you don't have to cruise the whole way. With bicycles on board for our exclusive use, you could swap the decks for dry land and ride alongside the canal on the bike path. Once you've worked up an appetite, dinner tonight will be served on board. (B,L,D) 
Day 6 - Ranchot - Besançon
There's a leisurely morning in store first as we cruise further along the Canal de Bourgogne. After lunch, we depart for Besançon via coach to explore the area at a leisurely pace. Later, we'll tour the Royal Saltworks, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before celebrating our final evening on the water with a gala evening dinner. (B,L,D) 
Day 7 - Besançon - Palace Of Fontainebleau - Paris
After a hearty breakfast, we bid farewell to our barge and look forward to our drive to Paris. (B)
