Welcome to Dijon

Dijon-Saint-Michel-ChurchHotels in Dijon, France put visitors right on the spot for a taste of some fine Renaissance and medieval architecture, plus some top French food, including the regional mustard.

Top Things in Dijon

Dijon-Porte-Guillaume-squareArt lovers who visit Dijon can find plenty to admire in the Musée des Beaux Arts, which is generally regarded as one of the best in France.

For a further taste of history, the Palais des Ducs, which houses the art museum in its eastern wing, offers splendid period architecture.

To add a further dimension to the popular cultural institutions and exhibitions presented in the city, the Archaeological Museum (Musée Archéologique) includes pieces from several periods of history.

Eating

As a cultural French city, it is not surprising that Dijon offers plenty in terms of its restaurant scene. It is French, and specifically Burgundian, cuisine that provides many of the highlights. For a wider taste of the local offerings, wine tasting in the Cote d’Or and browsing for mustard in one of the speciality shops are also good for the itinerary.
