I was one big day in Besancon. Would like to see the most important places, and had some practical questions. The people of the tourist information took the time and helped me very friendly. I could even store my heavy luggage for a while. Top!

Welcoming staff, but not open until 10am. Good advice about free parking but to park near the Office it is street pay parking.
