Local information

A human-scale regional capital, Dijon is, like Burgundy and its wines, a well-balanced city. Not forgetting that in the 15th century it was the European nerve center of the huge empire built by the Dukes of Burgundy. It is on the list of the top twenty French cities, bringing together all the services of a large metropolis with a city policy promoting proximity, conviviality, way of life and ecology. Regularly on the podium as one of the cities known to be the greenest, sportiest or safest, endowed with a large hotel capacity (1 to 5 stars), Dijon presents all of the advantages of a convention city, offering shops, services and choice addresses to the visitor wanting to relax, have a good time and eat a great meal (and drink great wine).
