The Yonne connects the Seine with the Canal du Nivernais and the Canal du Bourgogne. It is navigable from Auxerre to Montereau-Fault-Yonne. It is a splendid river bordered by beautiful ancient cities. Some of the locks have sloping sidewalls which pose problems not only to small boats. Also some of the weirs are in bad condition and therefore the water-level can be less than one meter. While planning your trip get informed as to the situation on the Yonne and the canals du Bourgogne and du Nivernais.
Auxerre is the capital of the Auxerrois wine-district.
Other wine-districts near-by: Tonnerrois (Tonnerre, Canal de Bourgogne) and
