Dijon has over 200 historical monuments. In the Rue des Forges, the facades of a couple of nice townhouses (hôtel particulier) can be found. Very touristic street, all about shopping.

It's the historic heart to the town and a wonderful spot for photos. Sit near the carousel and have a crepe. They're very good. It's picturesque, mostly clean and feels safe. Lots of interesting shops to explore and buildings to see.

Collection of three or so buildings that are architecturally interesting. Hotel Aubriot from the 13th century , Maison Maillard , built for the mayor of Dijon in 1560 and Hotel Chambellan, a lodging for Henri Chambellan. Some fancy stone work on the latter.

For Happy Hour, beyond the place of Liberation, it is an excellent place to relax, drink and eat. It has a wine shop named Nicolas where good wine with great cost-benefit.
