Dijon, Capital of the Dukes of Burgundy

The capital of a powerful and prestigious duchy during the Middle-Ages, Dijon has inherited a unique cultural and architectural heritage within one of the greatest conserved areas in France. An emblematic city of haute cuisine and lifestyle, Dijon is also the gateway to one of the most prestigious vineyards of France: the Côte de Nuits and its world-class wines.

Arriving here on the road from Troyes, King François I exclaimed at the sight of Dijon: “What a beautiful town, it is the town of a hundred bell towers.“ Dijon may have lost many of its belfries since then, but it has preserved its true magnificence. Let yourself be captivated by the capital of Burgundy, and enjoy the beauty and wealth of its heritage and gastronomic delights.
