Pardon me, but we ask you don’t pass on Dijon This word "Dijon" conjures up the image of a pseudo-sophisticated old man in the back of a limo, asking a passerby if he has a certain mustard. Get this out of your head. The historic capital of the Burgundy region will allure and captivate all of your senses, just like a fine Dijon mustard. Use your France Rail Pass, or Eurail France-Switzerland Pass and easily arrive into Gare de Dijon-Ville from Paris, Lyon or Lausanne in less than two hours thanks to the high-speed TGV. A few blocks from the rail station is the Dijon tourist office at 15 Cour de la Gare near place Darcy. Here you can get information and a brochure on where to pick up the "Owl's Trail." This self-guided tour brings you to most tourist sites in Dijon. The route is marked on the sidewalk by brass tiles featuring a little owl. When you come to a point of interest there is a number marked on the ground. Look up the number in your brochure for more information on that particular sight. (All cities should work like this.)

Value for money
"Excellent, efficient way to travel in Europe. Great connections and good value for money. Especially recommended for people travelling with only a 20 inch (European size limit) carry on bag. Large suitcases don't fit well and are a hindrance to everyone. "
