Dijon is a popular travel destination in the French region of Burgundy. The city was named after a type of mustard which it produces locally. It is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Originally, the city was the capital of the Dukes of Burgundy when the region was still in power during the 14th century. And because the dukes were patrons of the arts, the city has grown to become a centre of Renaissance and Gothic art and sculpture.
Many of the attractions in Dijon are located in the city centre. This area is best explored on foot although many travellers still opt to arrange for car rental in Dijon so they can head out to the surrounding countryside later on. Notable landmarks in the city include the Ducal Palace, the Well of Moses and the Musée des Beaux-Arts.
Outside the city centre, travellers can take their car hire in Dijon to the town of Beaune. The town features a number of wineries and beautiful regional architecture. The Hotel Dieu is a crowd favourite as it features Burgundian architecture in its Polyptych of the Apocalypse.
Further out, travellers can also drive to other parts of Burgundy with a cheap car hire in Dijon. Notable destinations include Auxerre with its great wine and interesting historical monuments.
The Dijon Rail Station is served by TGV trains coming from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. There are also high speed trains from other major cities in France as well as from numerous European destinations including Italy and Belgium.
