For 3 Euros, it's really worth going up there. Dijon is a very particular city and it's lovely to be able to see it's rooftops too!

A few stairs later and you can be up the tower with a wonderful view of the city of Dijon. Only €1,5 and the view is definitely worth the walk.

What can I say? I love towers and climbing stairs:) This one has ~320 stairs and once you are at the top, the view is gorgeous. There are some maps allowing you to better understand what you see.

Climbing the stairs were a challenge but the guide stopped regularly to share lots of information in English and French, which allowed us to prepare for the next lot. The views were definitely worth it.

You have to take 300+ steps (not that many right?) to reach the top and it's worth it. Very nice view over the city and all it's little roofs. You have to make a reservation/ buy tickets in advance. We had to pay only €3...More

There are many interesting facts to learn walking up the tower. I noted that although the guide could translate some limited things in English, if you do not speak French you miss a lot. The views are super as well as seeing the colored tile...More
