Beyond Paris, it's worth noting that there are many other places to see in France.
I visited Dijon for the first time and found it to be a charming place. La porte Guillaume is a historic monument leading to into old Dijon/the city centre. The arc has a significance of freedom for the city and it is from as far back as the 18th century.
It was lunch time so we settled in at a restaurant for lunch.
|Escargots/snails...it was yummy|

|Boeuf bourguignon with potatoes, bread and carrots|
|Cheese from the region :-)|
|God mother duties|
|See how nicely they bloomed|
I hear that if you go inside the palace area and are happy to walk up 300 steps, you'll be rewarded with a great view of Djjon. On this day, there was no way we were going to do so with this lil lady so we went to the museum only.
|She wanted to pose like me|
|I love everything about this photo|
|Isn't she just stunning!|
|The entire length of this car was fascinating|
|Streets of Dijon|
|Monument Sadi Carnot, place de la République|
We were getting tired so we had a break at Place de la République. My god daughter was in high spirits and wanted to play. We did a bit before we continued.
