Seurre
After a detour by small quiet roads in the Burgundy countryside, the Voie Bleue joins the Eurovelo 6 along the Rhone to Rhine canal after Samerey. The arrival on the left bank near St-Jean-de-Losne offers a magnificent view of this river city whose quays are bathed by the Saône. A must stop on the course!
