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.

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.

|The entire length of this car was fascinating

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.
