Overview

This 22-stage trail is designed not only to give you a taste of Dijon's charm, but also to take you back in time and show you the history of our town. Each numbered stage takes in a place of interest, and the whole trail can be covered on foot in about one hour. If you feel like finding out more about Dijon, this trail proposes 3 different loops: the Rousseau loop, the Zola loop and the Moses loop. But there's no reason to hurry! Take your time and enjoy the friendly atmosphere in the many museums, galleries, shops and cafés terraces!

Downloaded the app and map to my phone. Enjoyed the guided walk around town. Lots to see and places to visit. Also had things on the side to see and do as we toured about. All cities should have something like this!

Great fun leading us around the old town. The plaques give information in three languages, including English (Phew!).

I followed the owl trail for a bit but got bored with it, it is a small town and you can walk around in few hours on a good day.

Hello Paula The market is 4 days a week: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Thursdays the market is inside only but the other 3 days it's spills out on the streets and it's truly remarkable!
