Travel inspiration in Dijon and Besançon
Dijon, the capital of the Burgundy
Dijon is a town located in Burgundy region and home to more than 150,000 inhabitants. The town is probably most famous for its mustard. With an exceptional architectural heritage, the city of Dijon has 97 hectares of remarkably preserved monuments. Dijon is the gateway to the world renowned Côte de Nuits vineyards. Visitors can choose a guided tour to the vineyards and enjoy a glass of excellent wine in Marsannay-la-Côte, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée or Nuits-Saint-Georges. Don’t forget to look out for the lucky charm of Dijon: the particularly worn-out little Chouette, which fulfills the wish of those who touch it with a left hand stroke.
Dijon is conveniently found on the Rhin-Rhône high speed railway line, making it easily reachable from Paris in approximately 1h35 and from Basel (Switzerland) in 2h10 by train.
Besançon, the fortified city
Bescançon’s old town La Boucle nestles in a tight meander of the River Doubs in Eastern France. The World Heritage-listed 17th-century citadel looks down on streets of white stone buildings dating as far back as Roman times. Archways and secretive courtyards are ripe for aimless wandering.
