A two-day break:
Campanile has two hotels which are both about 6km (3.8 miles) from the centre of Mâcon : Campanile Macon Nord –Sennecé and Campanile Macon Sud – Chaintré . They are the perfect place to stay for your visit! There are many things to see while you are in Mâcon. In the centre of the city, an absolute must-see is the Vieux Saint-Vincent, a gorgeously primitive cathedral whose oldest part is made up of two immense towers. Another gem is the Uruslines Museum, which holds pieces from all over the region and which is housed in an old convent built in the 1600s. Other hotspots are the Hôtel de Senecé (which houses the once-private collection of the Lamartine museum), or some of the city’s other churches such as the Saint-Vincent, the Saint-Clement or the Saint-Pierre.
A week-long stay:
For a longer stay, you can further visit the four main sections of the city: the centre, which holds the principal shops as well as many of the city’s historical monuments, the north, which is highly residential and has several parks and sports facilities, the south, the industrial area, and the west, which is the least populated part of the city. One great day trip is to visit some of the wineries that have given the Burgundy region its name. Down to the south, you should also visit some Beaujolais wineries. You’ll be happy to know that the latter make many more (and better) wines than just the Beaujolais nouveau!
A family holiday:
A historically rich city, but with lots of places to simply relax, Mâcon will be the perfect place for your entire family.
