Information about Loire & Briare canals

From Plagny: 

Land of woods and forests dotted with charming villages, the Loire Valley is an ideal rendezvous for a first inland waterway cruise: Punctuated with remarkable sites such as curiously formed Gréau rocks, or past souvenirs- fortified Moret-sur-Loing, the 7 locks at Rogny constructed under the realm of Henry IV, the Briare canal bridge designed by Eiffel. Not to neglect the walks among the Morvan hills, or maybe wine tasting in the famous region of Sancerre and Pouilly.
