About France

Macon is the perfect destination by train if you want to share your time between culture and nature. You should visit the apothecary shop. Located at the ground floor of the Hotel-Dieu, it presents a great collection of what you could find in a chemist’s back to the 18th century.

You can also visit the 19th century St Peter church and stroll on the Herbe’s square and admire the medieval wooden house. You will also find archeological sites that are worth the detour. A cruise tour is also possible on the river Saône, offering a different view on the city.

Around Macon, experience a hot-air balloon tour to see the world-famous Burgundy’s vineyards from the sky.
