Champagne – a historic French province of doubtless natural beauty some 160 kilometers east of Paris – has a long-standing tradition in viticulture dating from as early as the first century.Indeed, there is no other place in the world where one is legally allowed to make a drink and call it ‘champagne’- it is only here, in the homeland of the luxury sparkling white wine that all the required conditions are being met. These include the maritime fossils in the chalky soil, the favorable climate and the undulating landscape. In fact, the name Champagne is derived from the Latin campania and denotes the similarity of the rolling hills to the Italian Campania countryside south of Rome.Travelers will undoubtedly be mesmerized by the cavernous chalk tunnels stretching for hundreds of kilometers under the modern cities of Reims and Epernay.

Some of these are over 30 meters deep and date back to ancient Roman times when inhabitants were searching for material from which to build their cities. The tunnels are nowadays called crayeres and act as cellars for millions of bottles of precious champagne. Above ground, one can’t help but flock to the large champagne maisons or to the smaller and more intimate estates of the vignerons (small cultivators) where hours upon hours of tasting can be a very enjoyable way to spend your days.Table of Contents:Introduction to the Champagne Region including Reims & EpernayOverviewCultureLocation & OrientationClimate & When To VisitSightseeing HighlightsReimsNotre Dame de ReimsPalais du TauBasilique St-RemiMusee de la RedditionMusee Hotel Le VergeurPorte de MarsMusee des Beaux-ArtsVerzenayHautevillersEpernayAyTroyesRecommendations for the Budget TravelerPlaces To StayResidhome Reims CentreSejeours & Affaires Reims ClairmaraisPremiere Classe EpernayLa Villa Saint PierreDomaine du Moulin de l’EtangPlaces To Eat & DrinkLa Table AnnaLe Bocal RestaurantRestaurant Chez MaxLa Cave a ChampagneLe Fille du PotagerPlaces To ShopVins CPH ReimsC.
