Travelling through France for a couple of weeks, we were staying here for 2 nights in a lovely apartment in old town.
We arrived by BlaBla Bus which drops you within a 10 minute walk of the old town.
As we approached the river, we were amazed at how lovely it was with all the old buildings lining the river and park.
The old town is quite steep and has lots of cobbles.
We wandered throughout the old town for a couple of days taking in the food and a couple of bars.
The people were friendly and we thought it was definitely worth a visit.

For 1.50 euros you can buy a great self guided walking guide for Auxerre at the Tourist Office. It is very good value. You can then spend 2 or more hours exploring the old town at your leisure. There are over 60 annotated sites to visit. Auxerre is a particularly pretty town overlooking the Yonne river with a cathedral & a couple of other interesting churches, not to mention the oldest vineyard in France and buildings that used to be brothels. The walk is a fascinating experience.

We popped into the tourist information office near the clock tower (be careful not to go into the travel agents opposite as they get ratty!). In there for about €1.50 you can buy a Cadet Roussell map and guide in English which will lead you around town following the little triangles on the pavements and explaining about the buildings that you're seeing. There are almost 70 points of interest. We probably only had time for 10 but it was €1.50 well spent.

We were very disappointed with this visit. Auxerre has a car parking problem. Cars are parked everywhere leaving little space to walk and to take photos. Since there are many cars, and there is no wind, the city is polluted by a high degree.

If they banished cars it would be more interesting to see.

Auxerre is a nice historical town on a river in Burgundy. In the centre you can find a cathedral (which is nicely illuminated in summer), many tiny streets full of (not only)local products shops so you can go shopping when it´s raining. There is also a great market where you can buy fresh food and flowers. Along the river there are cosy restaurants which serve delicious fresh food.

Beautiful town, capital of Yonne department, crossed by the Yonne river.
Many parking areas are scattered around the town; whether you’d intend to save money, several free-of-charge parkings are located just outside the historical city centre, but meantime few minutes walking time from it.
Before to start your visit, I do recommend to visit the tourism office, where you’ll find a nice brochure free-of-charge, that will support you in the tour around the city (further guides and maps, even more complete, are on sale).
The city centre is very enjoyable, with many half-timbering medieval houses; you’ll go through small squares and narrow streets, exposing beautiful historic palaces, bars, shops, charming restaurants, gourmand pastry-shops.
Just at side of the tourism office, you’ll find the double-face Clock Tower, one of the top Auxerre attractions; in the close vicinity, a funny statue of the poetess Marie Noël, made by François Brochet, both artists born in Auxerre.
Take time to visit the St. Étienne Cathedral, its wonderful façade and portal, its huge and severe interior inviting to meditation, with remarkable artistic coloured windows; as a further religious building, try to see even the Saint-Germain Abbey.
Many further churches are located around the town.
A beautiful view of the city, of its old quarters, and over all of the Cathedral, can be enjoyed from the bridge on the Yonne river; take the chance to make a walk on river bank and inside the quarter looking at it.

First, go to the parking area on the opposite bank of the Yonne with a wide angle lens on your camera, to capture the amazing views of the old town on the other bank. There are some steep streets, but the town is small, well preserved and easy to get around in a 1-2 hour visit. Could be very congested in peak season.

The old town of Auxerre is quite small and easy to walk around with lots of beautiful old and well preserved buildings. Lots of interesting little shops in the little alleyways. Pedestrian friendly with markers to point you to all the places worth a visit.

Wandering slowly around the old town is like a journey of discovery, the architechture delights at every turn with broad and narrow streets, alleyways and courtyards there's always something of interest to catch your eye. The city of Auxerre has done a masterful job in landscaping the place, flower beds, and pots abound with unusual and beautiful arrangements. The riverside walk completed two years ago is stunning with the old city and cathedral backdrop. On a matter of hygene here's a city at the vanguard of cleaning up the historical French reluctance to clean up after their dogs and while many towns are spolit by dogs fouling the pavements and grassed areas, Auxerre is educating it's citizens to clean up.......or be fined -if ponly more towns followed their lead! Just gorgeos, walk around at leaisure and soak up the atmosphere, stop for a coffee, a beer or glass of Chablis.......stunning town, spend time here!

If you like old medieval buildings etc then this city is a must do. Try to follow the recommended walk path. The whole area is impressive and one of the best we have seen in all of Europe. The town is very clean and well presented. Make sure you see the clock tower.
