Capital of the Dukes of Burgundy, Dijon is a city of art and history. It has great motorway links, by means of the A6, A38, A36, A39 and the A31 autoroutes, has a high-speed TGV train link to Paris (travel time 1 hour 40 minutes) and has an international airport.
Dijon is the gateway to the prestigious Côte de Vins de Bourgogne vineyards. You leave the city going southwards, and follow the Route des Grands Crus which goes through small characteristic villages with evocative names – Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Morey Saint Denis, Vougeot… Excursions to the vineyards can be booked at the reception desk of the hotel.
