What a wonderful place to explore and take in all the varieties of culture and tastes in Dijon. I was particularly happy to visit the MAILLE store and was greeted with a wide range of samples of pumped mustard - delicious! I would recommend Dijon to all.

For Happy Hour, beyond the place of Liberation, it is an excellent place to relax, drink and eat. It has a wine shop named Nicolas where good wine with great cost-benefit.

We love these old streets. Great architecture, shops, restaurants, cobbled streets. You can't miss it when you come to Dijon.

This is a fun street to explore in old town Dijon. It has shops, cafes, beautiful buildings and wonderful architecture all around you. Every town we have visited in Europe has a carousel and Dijon is no exception. You will definitely want the experience the charm this street exudes.

Great street to walk down, in fact the whole region is packed with beautiful old buildings and treasures to look at. Seems like pharmacies on every corner too??? A few beggars on streets but they are not pushy (yet) Well worth going out of your way to visit if you are in the region. Lots of shops selling regional specialties... More

As a main shopping street the Rue des Forges is certainly worth a visit, but apart from the Maille mustard shop it is pretty much the same as similar streets in a host of other cities.

Such a wonderful area! The buildings, architecture, cafes, shops, the ancient Merry go round! Relaxed area that takes you back to another time! Enjoy a wine, beer or coffee, sit back and take it all in. A place to visit!
