A day in Dijon

español

To be honest, Dijon, was never a city which I absolutely wanted to visit. Though I had friends living there, I always found an excuse not to go. It was until last week that I was convinced to go (I couldn’t say no anymore ^.^) and to my surprise, I fell in love with the city.

We got there a Friday evening, the weather was not to our advantage, as soon as we arrived it started to rain and it didn’t stop until the next day. However, we decided to do a quick tour of the city and visit the most famous places in the center of Dijon: the garden of Darcy, le Palais des ducs, le Musée de Beaux-Arts de Dijon, the church of Notre-Dame de Dijon and every other monument/building that we crossed in our way.

Afterwards, the cold and rainy weather forced us (who am I kidding, we were all craving some food xD) to get into a cozy café to eat some milkshakes and waffles. I have to say that the restaurants and cafés dijonais are very cozy and really good.

The next day, we got up really early in the morning in order to get ready for the graduation ceremony of my friend (reason for which I was convinced to go to Dijon). On our way to the congress center, the sun came out for a little while. Perfect timing because we were walking through an amazing little square called Place Wilson, therefore we decided to do a quick photo shoot:

The city of Dijon is like a big typically french village, full of gardens, squares, cafés and a very stress-free atmosphere but with all the services of a big city. I think a day in Dijon was too little time for me to visit Dijon and now I have to get back, hoping next time weather will be nicer.
