DIJON - GETTING AROUND
Walking is a great way to explore the city and offers the best way to discover the hidden gems. There is a self-guided walk in the city, called the Owl`s trail, shown by owl arrows and numbered owl plates in the ground. There are 22 stops showing interesting points of interest. The book with the description of stops is available at the tourist office for about €3.50. Also, many streets and squares downtown are reserved for pedestrians only.By Bicycle
If you plan to get outside of the downtown area it is often easier and faster to use a bike. There are lots of cycle paths and the streets are bike-friendly. Velodi ( www.velodi.net ; tel. +33-800-200-305) offers self-service and drop-off points all around town including Forges-Notre Dame by the tourist office and place Ste-Bénigne amongst the 40 locations around town.
The streets are bike-friendly. Also, Promenade de l`Ouche (or Coulée verte) is a walking and cycling trail which starts near the Hospital (rue du Faubourg Raines, 10 minutes walk from city center) and follows the Ouche river to the Kir lake, which offers cycling around the lake.By Taxi

Dijon has a good network of buses and trams, although the city is easy to get around on foot. The public transport is serviced by Divia. Tickets cost about €1.30 plus about 30 cents for a reloadable card, €3.90 for a 24 hour ticket, €6.85 for a 48 hour ticket, and €8.80 for a 72 hour ticket; prices estimated as of 2017.
Divia`s bus lines run every 3 to 10 minutes during the day 6:00 am to midnight from Monday to Saturday and every 30 minutes after 9:00 pm and on Sunday morning.
Divia`s modern tram system has two lines, the T1 and T2. The four most helpful stops for travelers are served by both lines: Gare (train station), plus Darcy, Godrans and République stations along the northwestern edge of the Old Town.

The city also offers the Diviaciti, a free, frequent shuttle bus for visitors that connects many of the downtown destinations in a loop, along with several parking areas. But be aware that the shuttle is only a minibus and is often congested with locals.
Dijon is well connected to the freeway and highway networks. Once in the city center traffic is limited, so you will probably want to park your car for the duration of your visit, except to access the Well of Moses, which is on the outskirts of the city. All city-center parking is metered. There`s a free car park at place Suquet, just south of the police station.
