Nestled at the foot of the graceful Côte d’Or hills, Dijon has been one of France’s preeminent cities for centuries. While perhaps best known today for the mustard that bears its name, Dijon was a major European settlement throughout much of the Medieval Era. The city became a significant cultural force during that time, attracting countless artists, musicians, and intellectuals from across the entire continent. Dijon was even the home of ancient royalty, as the Dukes of Burgundy used the city as their capital for close to five hundred years. Due to its prestigious past, UNESCO has designated Dijon’s historical city center as a World Heritage Site. Come begin a memorable exploration into this timeless French treasure from the steps of the Grand Hôtel La Cloche!

Afterward, the palace was the residence for the province’s royal governor for the next four hundred years. The building now operates as both a municipal office and a brilliant art museum.
