Dijon, Burgundy

gateway to the route des grands crus

 

The car park on Rue Condorcet is 200m from the cathedral St Benigne and the adjoining Archeological museum.  From the cathedral, you can pick up the Owl’s trail, a clearly marked walkway, that takes you around all the interesting parts of historical Dijon. 

The city has a number of advantages over its friendly rival Beaune - the TGV arrives in Dijon, and the trip from Gare de Lyon Paris is only 1.5 hours.  It is the capital city, and has a magnificent market and some interesting shopping.
