Keeping close to Burgundy’s border with the Champagne region, this stage of the Burgundy canal by bike runs between unspoilt hills and the little villages of the Florentinois and Tonnerrois areas. Finally, you’ll see the church steeple of Tonnerre ahead, marking the medieval town. Following the towpath on this stage, note that it hasn’t been done up yet.
