Reims is home to Champagne--the most celebrated and celebratory wine in the world.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cris-Event Champagne Tour and Palais du Tau. Get a sense of the local culture at La Maison Mumm and Champagne G.H. Martel & Co. Step out of Reims with an excursion to Champagne Barnaut in Bouzy--about 30 minutes away. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Maison Ruinart, look for gifts at Le Chocolat d'Emmanuel Briet, examine the collection at Hotel Le Vergeur Museum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique Saint-Remi.

To find ratings, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Reims journey maker site.
