Mâcon is a small city in the east of the centre of France, located in the province of Burgundy. The surrounding area is home to many wineries that make burgundy wine, or drive 20 mins south and visit the Beaujolais wineries.
Within the city, there are plenty of museums and historic buildings to capture your imagination. The main sights include the cathedral, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Hôtel de Senecé.
The city is small, and therefore walking around is easy. There are a couple of bus routes for those who prefer this option, as parking in the city is often full.
There are two train stations. Mâcon Loché TGV is about 10 km outside of town with lines to Marseille, Lyon and Paris. Mâcon Ville is in centre of town for local trains, to Lyon, Dijon, and Bourg-en-Bresse. There is a bus connecting the two stations.
By car, Paris and Marseille are both around 4 hours away, with Dijon and Lyon about and hours drive.
