For sure if you go to Dijon, schedule 1/2 day for enjoying the street and the surrounding. Shopping sightseeing and just relaxing.

After all you can just ask for the station direction once you want to find your way... More

We were staying in the Ibis Dijon Gare, about a 15 minute walk from this area. The street is very popular with visitors and shoppers, very level for wheelchair users. There are a lot of very interesting buildings but at the time we were there they were mainly closed

Strolling through Dijon old town is quite an experience. I wandered around from streets to streets early in the morning when there is not much crowd. I love the peaceful feeling and enjoy many wonderful old buildings every where I look. Definitely a destination that I would come back to visit in the future.

Historic and beautiful part of the ancient city. It's a must for photographers and history fans. We are all lucky that Dijon was spared by the ravages of war through the centuries. And it's free!
