Dijon The Essential
Dijon? An average town, happy with itself, with no great industrial trump cards, wedged between Paris and Lyons. Yes indeed, but be wary of snap judgements. Firstly as regards gastronomy, it is in Burgundy so you'll reach the heights here. And then there's all the rest; medieval architecture of such beauty (it left François I breathless) many green spaces and the port from which a 1000 kilometres of canals leave to cross Burgundy for the pleasure of holidaymakers.
