Cluny
There’s a timeless quality to this legendary stage on the greenways of Southern Burgundy leading to the great Cluny Abbey. The way meanders between the vine-covered Côte Chalonnaise slopes and the pretty Grosne Valley. Then the belltowers of medieval Cluny Abbey come into view amidst green hills before your gentle arrival at this remarkable village.
