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 Dijon's surroundings by going to La Citadelle de Besancon (in Besancon), Chablis Vititours (in Chablis) and Beaune (Hôtel-Dieu Museum Musée de l'Hôtel-Dieu, La Cave de l'Ange Gardien, &more). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, pause for some serene contemplation at Paroisse Notre-Dame De Dijon, and take in nature's colorful creations at Abbaye de Fontenay.
