Things to do in  Dijon

Welcome to Dijon

The ancient stomping ground of the Dukes of Burgundy, Dijon is now best known for its two most famous exports—Dijon mustard and Pinot Noir wines. Gothic spires, half-timbered houses, and gabled rooftops line the streets of the UNESCO-listed historic center, where roaming gastronomes can shop at Dijon's renowned covered market and tuck into local specialties, boeuf Bourguignon and escargots de Bourgogne. A visit to the Dukes' palace is another top thing to do in Dijon, as is a wine-tasting tour of the surrounding Cote de Nuits wine region.
