Besançon The Franche-Comté Capital
Tucked in a bend on the River Doubs, the capital of Franche-Comté, with its impressive UNESCO-listed Citadel towering above, has nothing to envy of the big cities. Besançon has plenty of natural treasures, cultural gems and architectural delights. Discover the Time Museum and the Fine Arts Museum before relaxing in the Gare d'Eau park or taking a boat trip through the city. For party animals, Besançon is a very lively place with multiple concerts at the Rodia and the Micropolis, and plenty of bars and restaurants. One thing's for sure, you'll never forget your city break in the heart of the Time capital.
