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.

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...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.
