Dijon, the capital of Burgundy, may not be what first comes to many travelers' minds, but it's a good choice because it has a different vibe from Paris, a lot of historic sites, and hands down some of the best food in France – be sure to try coq au vin and crème de cassis. Burgundy was one of the most powerful duchies in France, and this shows in Dijon's architecture and monuments such as the Palais des Ducs and the Musée des Beaux-Arts. From Paris's Gare de Lyon it's about an hour and a half on the TGV, and slower trains (about 3 hours) leave from Paris Bercy. The Dijon Sofitel isn't cheap but it's in a beautiful building. I stayed in Le Jacquemart on rue Verrerie; it has basic but clean rooms and free WiFi and is in a central location. It's very easy to get from the train station to most of Dijon by bus. If you decide you want to stay longer, your're close to Beaune and the rest of Burgundy's wine country.
