Champagne Suggested Itineraries
By Viator, August 2010
Days 1 & 2: Champagne in Champagne!
A good way to spend your first two days in Champagne is in Reims, and a great way to explore Reims is with an overnight stay at a luxury hotel, the The Assiette Champenoise. In this tour package, you’ll get overnight accommodations at the aforementioned hotel, as well as a Reims city pass. This city pass is a great bargain, as it provides you entrance to a variety of Reims’ museums. You’ll have two days to explore the city, including the world-famous champagne house of Mumm. Reims is known for its gourmet food and champagne, as well as its old-world charm. Spend your first day wandering around town and your second on a day trip to the countryside.
Day 3: Visit Épernay
On your third day, take a trip to Épernay. Épernay is the main entrepôt for champagne; buyers and sellers come to the town’s cellars from all over the world, and L’Avenue de Champagne is said to be the most expensive street in the world. The biggest champagne houses keep their headquarters on this street, and in the chalk caves beneath it hold millions of bottles of prized sparkling wines. Because of this, Épernay is a central tourist hub for wine aficionados. In particular, tour the cellars of Champagne Perrier-Jouet and Moet et Chandon.
