"Tourists, tourists everywhere" Cluny by reenby

Cluny Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 78 photos

Cluny was a shock. After a week cycling around quiet Burgundy suddenly we were back on the tourist circuit.

As we toiled up the main street, my heart sank as we were surrounded by cars and tourists. I had no idea Cluny was so well known.

We finally got off the main road and reached our hotel in the Abbey Grounds and it was like sanctuary. The traffic disappeared and the crowds faded. When I thought about it later it struck me as strange as most of the visitors must have come to see the abbey, but were happier in the shops and bars of the town.

As the shops closed the tourists fell away. By evening it was all much more pleasant and relaxed.
