Travelling to Dijon
If you are driving to Dijon from Paris, take the A6 southeast to the town of Pouilly-en-Auxois,
then head east on the A38 to Dijon. If coming by car from the UK, you will need
to make use of the Channel Tunnel train system or of ferry services to the continent.
An excellent alternative to reaching Dijon by road travel is to utilize the
cheap and efficient French rail system, especially the high-speed TGV, which
takes only 1 hour, 35 minutes from Paris and departs directly from Charles de
Gaulle Airport. Both TGV and standard trains arrive regularly at Dijon station
from the city of Lyon.
France's superb coach system connects Dijon with most other destinations in
France and major cities in the rest of Europe. Dijon itself has an excellent
local bus system which services the immediate and surrounding areas.
Dijon has a local airport which receives daily flights from London and several
French cities. The town lies 35kms from the airport and is connected to it by
means of regular and efficient public transport. Connecting flights can be booked
from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris to Longvic Airport in Dijon.
Several ferry companies run between Britain and various French ports. Ferry
travel is significantly cheaper than using the Channel Tunnel, so if you are
watching your budget this is probably the best option.
