New TGV Dijon/CDG and CDG/Dijon
Thanks for the suggestions pedmar :-)
Just want to add that from 5th July there is an extra TGV leaving Dijon at 17.09 to CDG. At last! You can book it already. You won't have to wake up so early to catch the 6.30am train!
And for those going to Dijon, you don't have to wait until 19h41, there is now a TGV leaving CDG at 11h16! Great if you can catch it!
TGV and Dijon Station
The TGV takes you to Dijon from Paris in about 1hour and 40 minutes. It is very comfortable and a great way of getting to Dijon or back to Paris. It is advisable to book a few days ahead.
The train station in Dijon is very centrally located and it is easy to reach the centre by foot.
You will also find many car rental services next to the train station.
Dijon by car
We easily found a public parking place in the outskirts
of the centre, and preferred walking to the inner town.
We also found that the main sights were marked very well, and easy to find.

Be careful taking a train.......
Just 6 hours of delay reaching Dijon, so....i could be happy for the "just 1 and 1/2 hours" traveling back to Milano...
