Setting sail from Chalon-sur-Saône

Chalon-sur-Saône was once a key trading centre and port, situated at the meeting of Roman roads, the river Saône and several other inland waterways. Chalon is also the birthplace of Nicéphore Niépce, widely credited as the inventor of photography. The city's distinguished history is reflected in its handsome buildings, and this is an excellent base from which to explore the southern Burgundy wine regions.

Arriving in Arles

The charming little town of Arles sits at the head of the Rhône delta, on the northern fringe of the sprawling marshlands of the Camargue. It's a town with a long history, as evidenced by an impressive array of Roman ruins, and though the gladiators may be long gone the 20,000 seater amphitheatre still plays host to the bloody and controversial spectacle of the corrida (bullfight). Whether or not you approve of all the local traditions, Arles is a great place to sample the essence of Provençal culture, and we particularly recommend the vibrant Saturday market.

Our tip

Try and get a reservation at L’Atelier where Michelin starred chef Jean-Luc Rabanel offers you a meal that is a work of art in itself. You could even combine it with a half-day cooking class.
