My experience in Dijon, France. By Cédric

What is life like in Dijon? Would you recommend this city to someone?

It is rather small, with a historic city centre. Therefore it is easy to get around on foot or by bike.

A visit to the museums and the old buildings is a must.

What is the student life like in Dijon?

It is nice and rather calm.

What is the cost of living in Dijon?

I think it is quite expensive for food, even if there are some inexpensive cafes such as Cafe Chez Nous. The 'Halles' market is also a good way to eat well for cheap.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Dijon? Do you have any advice?

I still live with my parents but accommodation can be found in the town centre. There is also the CROUS student accommodation which is inexpensive.

What is the local food like?

You will find gougères (savoury choux pastry) and pain d'épice (spiced bread) in the bakeries, which I love.

What is there to see and do in Dijon?

The museum of fine arts. Frac and Consortium if you are more into contemporary art. The many churches, cathedrals, parks, concert venues, cinemas, theatres, auditoriums and alternative venues. As well as the garden at Lentillères and the tanneries.

Where is the best place to eat in Dijon?

Cafe Chez Nous.

What is the night life like in Dijon? Where is best to go?

'Péniche Cancale' is a must. L'Espace Autogéré des Tanneries is good for concerts, as well as Vapeur who offer discounts for students and culture card holders. Going to bars and people's houses is also common.

Any advice for students arriving in Dijon?

Take the time to walk around the non-student parts of the city.
