Champagne is a region famous for its sparkling wines, located in northeastern France.

The main city in the region is Reims, known for its beautiful Cathedral Notre-Dame de Reims where generations of French kings were crowned.

A smaller town that is also central as a champagne producer is Epernay, which is home to miles of tunnels underneath its surface that house a number of the most famous brands. (Champagne is aged in the many chalk caves and tunnels, some originating in the Roman period, located deep inside the ground.)

Most producers are open for champagne tasting and tours by appointment only. There are many tour operators that specialize in making these arrangements.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Notre-Dame de Reims

The cathedral at Reims was the church in which numerous French monarchs were officially crowned. Reims is one of the later Gothic cathedrals and is renowned for its height. There is a fine interior west facade with carvings of Biblical scenes; some fine 13c stained glass in the high windows of the nave and choir; and windows by Marc Chagall (in the eastern chapel). The south transept window by Jacques Simon shows themes linked with champagne, including a portrait of the monk who invented it, Dom Perignon.
