Besancon

Architectural Buildings · Specialty Museums · Landmarks
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. This capital of the Doubs department and the principal city of the Franche-Comté region has an ancient history going back to 1500 BCE, when the Bronze Age tribes of Gauls settled within the oxbow of the Doubs River on the edge of the Jura Mountains. You can rent a canoe or a motor boat, charter a larger vessel, or hop on a relaxing tourist train to climb mountains without strain. Then you can rent some climbing gear and scale the Jura mountain peaks. You can rent a mountain bike or a street bike at Velocity Besançon--over 30 stations are scattered throughout the town that allow you to tour the city and visit many museums without the hassle of navigating a car through narrow streets. Planning France trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.
