A few words about Besançon (map of the city)

Besançon is the capital and main city of the Franche-Comté region. It is located in the east of France, close to the France-Swiss border. Besançon owes its reputation as the capital of time to its art of watch and clock making. The city has one of the most beautiful historical centres, which presents a remarkable ensemble of classic stone buildings, some dating back to the Roman era. The old town is enclosed in a broad horse-shoe part of the river (Doubs), which is blocked off at the neck by Vauban's imposing Citadelle. Some places not to be missed are the Vauban Citadelle (added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2008), the astronomical clock, cruises on the River Doubs among others.
