About France

The intendant of the botanical garden in Paris under Louis the XV, Buffon, was born here at the beginning of the 18th century and was very important to his city. He converted an old castle of the Burgundy’s dukes into an beautiful park. Visiting this park’s orangerie, you will discover the naturalist’s work.

You can also explore the museum of Fine Arts at the same place. Having a walk around this park you will find the two 14th century towers, the Ste Urse Church, the ramparts and other ruins of the old fortress.

Do not miss the great foundry that Buffon set up here, which is now a private historic monument that can be visited.

    "Yeah, the title says it all, unbelievable. Inside,the train is still a train, not the orient express if you know what I mean, but wow, the technology to run so fast and you don't notice it at all. The stations are something else entirely. Not many places to sit and they announce the track about 10-15 minutes before. One (Dijon) had stairs to climb, not easy with bags to carry. The information staff are very nice and very helpful. "
