Though it was sad saying goodbye to Bordeaux after a brief but unforgettable love affair with the place (haha), Dijon was a lovely surprise. It’s again another one of those places where its reputation precedes the actual experience. When people think Dijon, they just tend to think ‘Dijon mustard’. It’s a small city with a lot to offer. The old town, a designated UNESCO world heritage site, is a clean and pedestrianized area full of Renaissance-style houses and distinctive architecture with geometric glazed mosaic roofs characteristic of the Burgundy region. We enjoyed strolling around the picturesque old city. I took plenty of photos here – I may have to separate this re-cap into two posts.
Stay tuned for more pictures from this charming city in my next re-cap post 🙂
