Images of Dijon

Facade of the Church of Notre Dame
We're enjoying our time in Dijon. Here are some views of the city.

We spent the morning strolling through the streets of the ancient center of the city. Above is the cobblestoned Rue Verriere, lined with medieval half-timbered shops.

After lunch we went to the Museum of Burgundian Life. The inscription on the little faience plate above reads "I will always be amorous with a bottle of old wine."

Entering through one of the narrow streets that opens onto the central Place des Armes.

Carved wooden doors on the Palais de Justice
The buildings here are both ancient and majestic.

The Museum of Burgundian Life is housed in a former Bernardine convent. Here is the lovely garden in the central courtyard.

A bottle of wine with dinner.

Later today we will drive down to the town of Beaune for some sight-seeing.

Now that it's getting close to 5 P.M., I'll join you with a glass of Malbec.

Oooh, I love that little plate! I'm enjoying your photos and travel log.

I'm surprised the inscription on that plate hasn't been shared with the world before now.
If the shoe fits... ;)
