Rheims : Michelin's recommendations
Artistic city, site of coronations, seat of a university, Reims is famous for its cathedral and basilica of St Rémi. It is also the joint capital of Champagne (along with Épernay). Bounded by a belt of boulevards laid out in the 18C, the town (largely destroyed in 1914) has extensive outlying districts which sometimes border the vineyards. Today its liveliest areas are along the rue de Vesle and most notably on the long place Drouet-d'Erlon.
