Besancon in Franche-Comte by Mzondi Lungu

Besancon, Franche-Comte

We continue northeast to the ancient city of Besancon in the Franche-Comte. Besancon is probably the best city to visit if you wish to get a taste of France throughout all of its history, from pre-Roman times, through the Roman occupation to the Dark Ages and eventually the Renaissance and the Modern Age. If you get bored with culture, the Alps and skiing are a short journey away, but Besancon is so laid back it is unlikely you will want to leave.
