Dijon is a wonderful city which lies approximately 90km to the north of Chateau de l’Eperviere campsite. The city centre of Dijon is one of the most splendid in all France, with everything from gothic churches like the magnificent 13th century Notre Dame to the narrow cobbled streets of the old merchant’s quarter.
Dijon has always been of importance with the earliest archeological finds dating back to neolithic times. As time went on the Roman empire settled in Dijon and then the Dukes of Burgundy made their home here between the 11th and 15th Centuries which led to some of the more impressive buildings which can be found in the city.
Besancon lies approximately 130km to the northeast of Chateau de l’Eperviere and although some distance away we believe it’s a city well worth visiting. The city is filled with history and culture and boasts one of the most wonderful and beautiful historic centers of any major city in France.
The city was founded originally by the Romans and several remains are still visible today including the Porte Noire which is a 2nd century arch at the foot of the citadel hill and the Square Castan which is semi-circular amphitheater.
There are a whole host of other places to see and visit at Besancon, including Vauban’s citadel which sits on a hillside above the city and boasts an elaborate system of fortifications.
