Dijon: gastronomic destination in the heart of Burgundy
Known as the "City of Dukes," Dijon was the capital of the medieval duchy of Burgundy. Admiring the impressive architecture and visiting its remarkable landmarks like the Palais des Ducs and the Musée des Beaux-Arts is only the beginning of the attractions in Dijon. The city has so much to offer when it comes to wine and gastronomy that it’s a mandatory stop for anyone looking for a culinary experience in France!
You will have the chance to savor gourmet meals at traditional restaurants, dine in top-notch Michelin-starred restaurants such as Loiseau des Ducs*, or even indulge in the authentic French culinary specialties like escargot and boeuf bourguignon. Not to forget the famous mustard from Dijon, which is sold in all the downtown’s quaint boutiques, and the nearby vineyards producing some of the finest wines in the world. No wonder, we’ve decided to open a campus there!
