The former capital of the Dukes of Burgundy, nestled in a green setting, offers the traveller the restful image of its upright bell towers and the whiteness of the stone married to the coloured tiles. Its entirely preserved historic centre is easily explored on foot, offering the charm of its narrow streets for a stroll between historic monuments, shops and private mansions. Among the half-dozen museums in the city, the Fine Arts Museum is of European importance. From church to private mansion, you can relive the history chiselled into the stone, from the first Romanesque age to neo-classicism, while the lively market halls bring the walker back to the reality of a lively city where life is good. Dijon is not short of air with its many gardens and parks where you can recharge your batteries after a day spent in the museums. The Dijon Tourist Office offers various guided tours for individuals (1h30).
Dijon has been classified as a City of Art and History since 2008.
The inscription of the climats of the Burgundy vineyards on the Unesco World Heritage list rewards the commitment of an entire territory.
