Nestled within a loop of the Doubs river and surrounded by seven hills, Besançon is a really charming little city. Here, various eras of history come together marvellously, revealing their features to those walking through the city. From the proud Gallo-Roman porte noire (black gate) to the Renaissance mansions, and including the birthplaces of both Victor Hugo and of the Lumière brothers, walking along its pedestrianised streets will take you on a journey back in time! And you'll be able to round off your visit when you sit back on the shore of the Doubs, beneath the shade of the high walls of the citadel.
Your camping holiday in Besançon will also be an opportunity to find out about its cultural heritage, with its Musée du Temps housed within a wonderful building in the city centre, where you'll be able to find out all about this watchmaking city's past. The citadel, formerly a 17th century fort which looks out over the city, is also well worth a detour! You get to it via a pretty path along the ramparts. Listed by UNESCO, the fort is home to a zoo as well as the Resistance museum.
Your camping stay in Besançon will be an opportunity to enjoy the countryside of Franche-Comté: just a few minutes away from the city, the forests, woodland and hills are fantastic places to enjoy with your family. The countryside really does lie at the heart of this city! You'll also be able to use the cycle path and enjoy a rustic trip along the banks of the Doubs. And why not go for some outings as far as Switzerland, which lies nearby only 60 km away?
