Hotels with Secure Parking around Dijon
I am planning an overnight stay en route from Italy to UK and need a hotel with very secure parking. Any suggestions? Preferably easy access from autoroute.
Re: Hotels with Secure Parking around Dijon
If you mean private garage they all are in town. By decreasing order of price (but I have no recent prices) :
Sofitel La Cloche
Those close to the autoroute have private parking lots but not enclosed. They are secure anyway.
Comfort Inn in Chenove
Relais de la Sans fond in Chevigny
Flambée in Sennecey les Dijon
Holiday Inn Garden court 5 km north to Dijon
Novotel in Marsannay-la-Côte is the only one that has an enclosed parking lot.
I suppose most of them if not all, have a web site.
Travel Tips for Dijon
Rue de la Liberte
Dijon is an open museum of fine domestic architecture, offering fascinating glimpses of the past. Most of the buildings of interest are crammed into the old city, an area protected by stringent zoning regulations. Through its centre runs the Rue de la Liberte, cutting like a sword through the smaller streets on either side.

Ride over the mountains to Geneva....NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED ....scarey roads with lots of hairpin bends.
Had to really concentrate to stay on the road as the rain just fell out of the sky.
Water was running down the mountain sides and was like raging rivers across the roads.

There's a shopping Mall calles La Toison D'or, take the bus #16 from the Centre Ville to get there. Approximately 10 to 15 minutes. There are many boutiques and also restaurants and cafés around:)
Cathedral St-Benigne - The 5th version.
The history of this church is very old and dates from the early sixth century. In 870 the church was rebuilt and became part of an abbey. Early tenth century the church was rebuilt for the third time. In 1137 when fire broke out in Dijon the abbey was seriously affected and rebuilt a 4th time. Then the Romanesque Rotunda was inserted into the building. In 1271 the fall from a tower made most of the church collapse.
The present church was built from 1280 on and was completed in 1393. So what we see is the fifth version!
At the Revolution the church again knew bad times and the two floors of the Rotunda were destroyed. The church was transformed into a Temple of Reason and the abbey was no more used. It served as a place for storing tomb of the dukes of Burgundy. They were vandalized during that period.
In 1795 the church was given back to worship and became a cathedral.
L'histoire de l'église Saint Bénigne est très ancienne et remonte au début du VIe siècle. En 870 l'église est reconstruite et devient partie d'une abbaye. Début du Xe siècle l'église est reconstruite pour la troisième fois. En 1137 lors de l'incendie de Dijon l'abbatiale et fortement touché et reconstruite une 4e fois. C'est alors que la Rotonde en style roman est insérée dans l'édifice. En 1271 la chute du haut clocher fait s'effondrer la majeure partie de l'église.
L'actuelle église est construite à partir de 1280 et ne sera achevée qu'en 1393. C'est donc la cinquième version!
A la Révolution l'église connait à nouveau de mauvais moments; les deux étages de la Rotonde sont détruits. L'église est transformée en Temple de la Raison et il est mis fin à l'abbaye. Elle sert d'entrepôt aux tombaux des ducs de Bourgogne qui y seront vandalisés.
En 1795 l'église est rendue au culte et deviendra cathédrale.
"please check back again real soon"
Bonjour! Thanks for stopping by. Did I say I miss France? I miss VTing, too. Today I have a few minutes to update some pages, and I thought I'd start with Dijon.
Although my last trip to Dijon was in 2001, the tips here are all CURRENT. Yes, in true VT fashion, I have checked my sources to make sure you don't try to book a hotel (or restaurant) that doesn't exist anymore.
