Hello to everyone, I need your help. We are traveling to Paris in May and want to use one of the days we have to travel outside of Paris. I would love to visit the region of Champagne and do some wine/champagne tour/tastings.
Can anyone suggest the best city to travel to in the region? Also, will I beable to do tasting tours in the area as well as seeing the sites? what is there to see?
Thank you all in advance
I suggest you go to Reims (Rheims). There are several caves there from the champagne houses, as well as other sights, e.g. cathedral. Tasting isn't free, but cheaper than bars!
True champagne centre is Epernay, but I imagine Reims would make a better one-day trip.
