This street stretches from the tourist office up to the arc de guillaume and has a large range of shops along its length probably covering most people's needs. Here you will find the Mail le mustard shop.

Dijon is a lovely little city, with plenty to see and do for a few days. Rue Des Forges is one of the prettier streets and well worth a visit.

I just loved Dijon, the buildings are very ornate and the town is very quaint. This area with it's fountain and carousel looks like something out of a fairy tale. This is a must see. There are restaurants and shops all around the area.
