Besancon

— 14 nights
Proclaimed the first "green city" of France and labeled a "Town of Art and History," Besancon has plentiful mountain and river activities for you to enjoy.
Appreciate the collections at Musee de la Resistance et de la Deportation and Espace des Mondes Polaires. Get in touch with nature at Les Gorges de la Langouette and Reserve Naturelle des Tourbieres. Change things up with these side-trips from Besancon: Ornans (Grand Pont d'Ornans & Place Courbet), Source de l'Ain (in Nozeroy) and Belvedere des Quatre Lacs (in La Chaux-du-Dombief). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Villa Palladienne, get lost in a book at Librairie L'Intranquille, see the interesting displays at Musee de la Taillanderie, and step into the grandiose world of Chateau Fort d'Oricourt.
