Dijon and its center

The city "of a hundred steeples" has become over the centuries a reference in terms of culture, heritage and art of living.

Its historic center can easily be explored on foot, offering the calm of its narrow streets for a stroll between historic monuments, shops and private mansions, which makes it the 2nd preserved historic sector in France after Paris (Dijon is a "City of Art and History").

The capital cultivates a strong link with gastronomy, and is considered one of the gateways to a vineyard whose 1247 different micro climates have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage since 2015.
