A generous and gourmet city, Dijon is an essential stop on the Tour de Bourgogne by bicycle. The palace of the Dukes of Burgundy is the heart of the ducal capital which has become regional. It houses the Fine Arts Museum, one of the largest in Europe. The historic centre is of rare elegance: half-timbered houses, private mansions, remarkable churches. Dijon is also a green city with its tramway, parks and gardens and the port of the Canal de Bourgogne, from where you can reach the countryside by following the green route.
