Besançon Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Discretely nestled in a bend of the Doubs river, Besançon is the capital of the Franche-Comté region. The town offers numerous attractions to visitors: narrow pedestrianised streets, delightful private mansions, the famous Palais Granvelle, and many other vestiges of its illustrious past. Perched high on a rocky spur, the citadel built by Vauban has retained its imposing appearance, attracting thousands of visitors inside its thick walls.
