Many character buildings and a great place to sit and drink a wine or coffee. If you have children give them a ride on the historiic carousel. In Dijon they have an Owl's trail which is marked on the sidewalk. There is a tourist office in rue des Forges which can provide a booklet to help you explore. Nearby on... More

Dijon is a lovely little city, with plenty to see and do for a few days. Rue Des Forges is one of the prettier streets and well worth a visit.

I just loved Dijon, the buildings are very ornate and the town is very quaint. This area with it's fountain and carousel looks like something out of a fairy tale. This is a must see. There are restaurants and shops all around the area.

It would be difficult to see the tourist sites in Dijon and miss this street. It has plenty of restaurants and shops and is close to all the main tourist attractions.

We wandered around the streets where we had reserved a hotel for a couple of nights, with open mouths! This was a complete shock to us, as we had tried to research Dijon, with very dull results. Stumbling into the old town which catapulted us back in time some 4-500 years was amazing and I wouldn't have missed it for... More

Nice medieval street, mostly original. Certainly not the most interesting medieval area I have visited in Europe, but then Dijon is very small! Fairly atmospheric.

One of the stunning sites of Dijon. You drink, eat and talk on terraces within a medieval atmosphere.

Amazing to see the buildings in this area, some 400-500 years old. Hard to imagine many of them have survived to this day thru weather, time, and war. A testament to the solid construction used many years ago and the styles still stand the test time. Simply incredible and absolutely worth a visit. Highly recommended.
