Reims is a pretty city, but it is also a bit spread out, it’s not as easily walkable as Dijon is to see all the cool stuff, in fact we saw very little of the ‘cool stuff’ because of this. The shite weather didn’t help either, but weather is weather and you have to make do, as we had been doing so often through this vacation.
For those of you that don’t know Reims (Rance) is the capital of the Champagne region, in Reims there is also the Cathedral Notre Dame (of Reims, as opposed to the HUNDREDS of other Notre Dames in France) where more than 50 Kings of France were crowned.
It is a lovely city, and much less of a tourist trap than some parts of France. There will be multiple posts about Reims, this one deals with Champagne.
That said, I’m not posting everything here, if you want to see all of the photos from France, you should look at my Flickr account. Which is here (p).
We now move on to Historic Reims (Rance).
