Gateway to Burgundy
Perhaps best known for its locally produced mustard, Dijon also makes a wonderfully flavorful crème de cassis, or blackcurrant liqueur, and boasts excellent examples of regional architecture with polychrome roofs made of tiles in terracotta, green, yellow, and black placed in geometric patterns. Unlike many nearby cities in the Côte-d'Or department of the Burgundy region, World War II bombings did not heavily damage the city's historic buildings and byways, leaving many of the city's structures largely intact.
A great way for you to take in the sights and sounds of the city center is to rent a bicycle from one of the Vélodi kiosks throughout the city that allows you to pick up a bike at one location and leave it at another stand. For a fun way to spend your day, take the self-guided walk through the city called Parcours de la Chouette, shown by owl arrows and numbered owl plates in the ground. The tourist office offers a book, for a nominal fee, with interesting tidbits represented by all 22 owls. Plan your tour of Dijon and France travel itinerary using our France tour itinerary planner.
