The Saône (French: La Saône French pronunciation: ​[son]; Arpitan Sona, Latin: Arar) is a river of eastern France. It is a right tributary of the Rhône, rising at Vioménil in the Vosges department and joining the Rhône in Lyon, just south of the Presqu'île. The name "Saône" derives from that of the Gallic river goddess Souconna, which has also been connected with a local Celtic tribe, the Sequanes. Monastic copyists progressively transformed "Souconna" to "Saoconna", which ultimately gave rise to "Saône". The other recorded ancient names for the river were Brigoulus and Arar.

Saône, Lyon Reviews - Write a Review

  • We had a lovely walk along the river banks near to Cormoranche-sur-Saone. It was quiet, and wooded. There are some well signed paths taking you along the bank and then back to the village and camp site. There were Grey Herons, Buzzards, Storks and water fowl to be seen. Spotted a dragonfly and damzel fly
