Reviews for River Port of Besancon
Potentially sketchy, 2014-08-06
Captain: , Washington DC (3035)

We didn't have problems but other boats had bottles thrown from the banks at night - it's a night-time hangout for the local miscreants. No real harm done, but it's not exactly a good night's sleep. Other than that Besancon is a 5-star city.



Port of Besancon, 2012-03-09

Easily accessable docks close to city centre, situated on walking path which follows the river around the old city.
New faciliity, excellent docks, fenced off from general public
The city is well worth serveral days stop
