Tour to the Champagne Region from Paris
Champagne is famous all over the world for the quality of its sparkling wines, flagships of the French way of life.
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2015, the Champagne vineyards produce 300 million bottles each year. The big Champagne houses are mainly concentrated in two cities: Epernay and Reims.
The town of Epernay is entirely surrounded by vines. Walk down the Avenue de Champagne, with its magnificent mansion façades and opulent middle-class homes occupied by famous Champagne Houses, and you can see why Epernay competes for the title of ‘Capital of Champagne’.
The 13th century cathedral of Reims has sanctified the coronation of most of the French kings. It is renowned for its pure Gothic architecture and ornate sculptures of which the most famous is undoubtedly the Smiling Angel. The Romanesque Basilica of Saint-Rémi is equally exceptional.
Meet the winemakers – Growers, Champagne Houses and Cooperatives – and learn first-hand what makes Champagne wines so special. Use the details here as the basis for your travel plan, so you visit different production areas in turn and taste the wines made by different wineries.
The Champagne Houses take great pride in their traditions and are more than happy to show visitors around their cellars. It is here that Champagne wines are painstakingly aged for at least 15 months, slowly developing those magical qualities that make them a toast for even the most spirited occasion.
Your private driver will take you from Paris to Reims and Épernay in a comfortable vehicle and then bring you back to your hotel and your apartment.
