Tips from the community

Where better to taste France’s golden elixir than the land from which it originates? Just one hour from Paris, hop over to the city of Reims in the heart of the Champagne region and prepare for a royal tasting. Book a tour at the country’s top champagne houses including Ruinart, the oldest Maison de Champagne founded in 1729 and Taittinger, one of the last of the great independent houses. In between bubbles, visit the site where every French King was crowned: 900-year old Reims Cathedral, with stained glass windows designed by artist Marc Chagall. Speaking of art, the Musée des Beaux-Arts, set in a former abbey, houses a number of masterpieces including works by Renoir, Monet, Matisse and 19th-century landscape artist Camille Coroy (re-opening in 2023).
