The Travel Book – Dijon, France

If you are heading out on your travels soon and are looking for a place to visit in France then why not head out to visit Dijon. It is a train journey away from Lyon (which is one of the closest airports as well as Paris) and it is also a place that is so pretty that you will want to make sure that you have a camera with you as well.

Dijon is located in Norteastern France in the department of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. It is also known as the historic capital city of Burgundy and also as the smallest regional capitals. It has a rich history that can date back all the way to the 14th and 15th century. In 2015 it was listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.

There is so much to see in Dijon and that is why I think you will enjoy a visit. I would say the best way to experience it is by walking around the town, that way you can find the old buildings, the carosel and the iconic buildings such as the Palais des Ducs and the Musee des Beaux-Arts, the Cathedrale Saint-Benigne, Eglise Notre-Dame and Eglise Saint-Michel to name a few. Of course, when you are in the area that has the name of mustard, it is only right to visit the mustard shop, a place where there is mustard of all flavours on tap for you to purchase.

I have visited Dijon a number of times and really like it as a town, it is really pretty and there is always something new to see the next time you visit. There is so much history in the area that is is great to see it in all it’s glory. It is a great place for food and drink as well which means that you can have a great time with that as well. I really liked the little things you see if you look hard enough like the lucky owl, the sculptures on some of the architecture and so much more.
