The ‘‘Voie Verte’’

••• for families { 74 km }

In 1997, the Saône-et-Loire region launched the first ‘‘Voie verte’’ in France, which quickly became a benchmark across France and abroad. From Chalon-sur-Saône to the gateway of Mâcon, this route crosses the landscapes dominated by the Rocks of Solutré, Pouilly and Vergisson, labelled as ‘‘Grands Sites de France’’. It combines visits to Côte Chalonnaise vineyards and heritage sites testifying to the spiritual influence of Cluny and poetic reminiscences of the Val Lamartinien.

This route in particularly offers travelling through a tunnel: the Bois Clair tunnel.
An alternative route of 9.5 km allows you to bypass it. You can reach the Canal du Centre by a route from Etiveau to Saint-Laurent-d’Andenay.

Two sections of the greenway route

linking Chalon-sur-Saône and Mâcon have the "Tourisme et Handicap" label.
