Dijon— 7 nights
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.Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Dijon: La Citadelle de Besancon (in Besancon), Beaune (Hôtel-Dieu Museum Musée de l'Hôtel-Dieu, La Cave de l'Ange Gardien, & more) and Chablis Vititours (in Chablis). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Owl's Trail, admire the masterpieces at Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, and steep yourself in history at Abbaye de Fontenay.
