Travel inspiration in Florence and Dijon
Florence, the capital of Tuscany region, Italy
Florence (Firenze in Italian) is nestled within the Tuscan region of northern Italy and surrounded by rolling vineyards and olive groves. Visitors are just as beguiled by the beauty of the city itself as they are by the paintings and sculptures found in its many museums. The city was home to many well-known artists, writers, explorers, and scientists. Amongst its most famous residents were Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Galileo. Famous for its rich history and considered as the birthplace of Renaissance the city is nowadays a popular tourist destination and is ranked as a UNESCO World heritage site. Many of Florence’s churches are works of art in themselves. The most famous of the city’s churches is the Santa Maria del Fiore, known simply as the Duomo.
Dijon, the capital of the Burgundy
Dijon is a town located in Burgundy region and home to more than 150,000 inhabitants. The town is probably most famous for its mustard. With an exceptional architectural heritage, the city of Dijon has 97 hectares of remarkably preserved monuments. Dijon is the gateway to the world renowned Côte de Nuits vineyards. Visitors can choose a guided tour to the vineyards and enjoy a glass of excellent wine in Marsannay-la-Côte, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée or Nuits-Saint-Georges. Don’t forget to look out for the lucky charm of Dijon: the particularly worn-out little Chouette, which fulfills the wish of those who touch it with a left hand stroke.
Dijon is conveniently found on the Rhin-Rhône high speed railway line, making it easily reachable from Paris in approximately 1h35 and from Basel (Switzerland) in 2h10 by train.
Reviews & ratings Florence - Dijon
I travelled from Dijon to Florence and back in April. When I booked my ticket on raileurope.com, I payed for what was called a 1st class ticket. Well, it was a compartment with 4 beds, not very special in the way you would think a 1st class bed would be (it's actually a "couchette" not a bed). And the free water bottle didn't make up for the comfort of the couchette. The train was late both ways, 1 hour on the way to FLorence, 2 and a half hours on the way back and apparently it's a very common occurence. Nothing to say about the staff though, excellent welcome, friendly and professional, helping out with the delay for people to get their connections later. Thelio has actually offer a partial refund for the delay (it happens if the train is more than 1 hour late). It remains a very efficient way to go from France to Italy, but my advice would be to just book a seat, you will probably sllep as much as in a sleeping compartment.
