Auxerre on the Yonne

Accompagnés de 15 amis, nous avons choisis Auxerre comme départ dune randonnée d'une semaine.

Nous sommes partis cette année (2005) de Chablis (mhm... le bon vin...) pour arriver à Donzy près de la Charité-sur-Loire. Huit jours de plaisirs intenses, plein de découvertes de jolis endroits, de bons plats et bons vins: les atouts de vacances réussies


With 15 friends of mine, We started a walking trip in Auxerre.

We walking this year from Chablis (wine...yummy...) to Donzy near La Charité-sur-Loire. Height days full pleasure. Lovely places, good eat and wine are the ingredients of successful hollydays.


The visit of Auxerre

Auxerre est situé à environ 600 km de chez nous, et donc il nous fallu près d'une demi journée de voiture pour rejoindre le point de rendez-vous.

Pour ce premier jour, nous nous sommes donnés rendez-vous place des Cordeliers, à deux pas de la cathédrale à 13 heures.

Nous sommes alors partis pour une visite de la ville


Auxerre is about 600 km away from home and it took about a half day to joint the meeting point.

The first day we making a rendez-vous at one pm so that we could visit the city.

We started place des Cordeliers...near the cathedral


At the cathedral

Nous avons pris notre temps pour une visite de la cathédrale, dont l'un des intérêt principal est un superbe ensemble de vitraux d'un bleu profond donnant une atmosphère spéciale à l'ensemble


We took our time for a visit of the cathedral, of which the one of the principal interests is a superb body of stained glasses of a blue deep one giving a special atmosphere to the body

    Superb pictures, would really love to see the place. If you gave the French translation of your tips, I could learn some French as well.
