"A convivial place that's an absolute must for epicureans and wine lovers but also a university city with a vibrant youthful population.
The sandstone streets of the old town are a world of excellent restaurants, trendy wine bars, cookery schools and smart delicatessens selling its major exports of wine, spiced bread, blackcurrant liqueur and, of course, mustard.
It's also the former seat of the Dukes of Burgundy, who in their 14th and 15th-century heyday ruled an empire stretching as far as Belgium. Around 40 timber-framed buildings remain from this period.
Getting about can involve the modern tram system, or be more traditional with the free bikes that can be borrowed from various locations."
