Description

We’ll leave by coach from Dormans to Reims, known as the “City of Coronations”. Reims played a prominent role in French monarchical history as the traditional site of the crowning of the Kings of France. Many notable champagne-producing houses have their headquarters in Reims. We’ll enjoy a guided tour on foot and discover the Place Royale, Place Du Forum (Roman forum), the Place de l’Hôtel de Ville and more. The cathedral became a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the former Abbey of Saint-Remi and the Palace of Tau, in 1991.
We’ll take part in a guided visit of the cathedral, which receives about one million visitors annually. Built in the 13th and 14th centuries, this work of art is unique in its unity of style, stained-glass windows of rare magnificence and the “Smiling Angel” statue. At the end of our tour, we’ll return on board in Dormans.
