Dijon

— 2 nights

Gateway to Burgundy

Perhaps best known for its locally produced mustard, Dijon also makes a wonderfully flavorful crème de cassis, or blackcurrant liqueur, and boasts excellent examples of regional architecture with polychrome roofs made of tiles in terracotta, green, yellow, and black placed in geometric patterns.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Hôtel-Dieu Museum Musée de l'Hôtel-Dieu and Musee des Beaux-Arts de Dijon. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dijon: Parc de l'Auxois (in Arnay-sous-Vitteaux) and Abbaye de Fontenay (in Montbard). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Owl's Trail, steep yourself in history at Cathedrale Saint-Benigne de Dijon, pause for some serene contemplation at Paroisse Notre-Dame De Dijon, and awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area.
