Getting Here in Sens
It makes sense for Sens to be your first stop in Burgundy, because it's only 90 minutes by car from Paris on the N6, a fast road that hugs the pretty Yonne Valley south of Fontainebleau. Training in and out of Sens is a breeze as it's on a major route with 28 direct TER trains (€18.40) leaving the Paris Gare de Bercy train station weekdays and 23 on weekends. TER trains from Paris Gare de Bercy can take you to Auxerre (€26.40), Dijon (€42), Beaune (€45.40), and many points between. Avallon (€32.30) can be reached directly three times a day, leaving Paris at 8:38 am, 12:38 pm, and 4:31 pm. The regional TransYonne bus network, in conjunction with Les Rapides de Bourgogne (03–86–64–83–91 www.rapidesdebourgogne.com), runs a noon link from the SNCF station in Sens to Auxerre on Wednesday and on demand on Saturday (0800–303–309 for information and mandatory reservation with TransYonne).
