Reims Reims, France
Reims lies 129 km (80 mi) east-northeast of Paris. It was founded by the Gauls and became a major city during the Roman Empire. Reims played a prominent ceremonial role in French monarchical history as the traditional site of the crowning of the kings of France. The city's economy is based largely on wine production, for which the Champagne region is famous, and a visit to Reims often includes a popular tasting of the most famous French wines at the 'Maison de Champagne'. Reims has many attractive pedestrian boulevards, Roman remains, art-deco cafes and a flourishing fine-dining scene that counts among it four Michelin-starred restaurants. Of course Reims also has all the shops and other facilities that you would expect in a major city.
There are numerous sightseeing opportunities, but Reims is most famous for its cathedral (1211-1480), which is one of the finest examples of the French Gothic architecture style. The key feature of the cathedral of Reims is the sculptures and unique glass windows; the western portal has 35 statues and an impressive rose window, among the most notable are the small figures of angels including the famous Smiling Angel, one of the most famous sculptures of the cathedral. The central facade consists of three central doors and two strong buttresses, which are the essential decorative motif of the cathedral. Also beautiful is the western portal, with three doors, which is also rich in statues including the Stories of Adam and Eve. The side faces are also very elegant, with buttresses soaring upward, repeating the theme of the main facade.

Among other religious buildings to visit is the Basilica of Saint Remi, where the bishop baptized Clovis. The basilica has a Romanesque structure, and particularly noteworthy are the 12th century choir section and the great chandelier of the twelfth century, formed of nearly 100 candles.

Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral, the Former Abbey of Saint-Remi (now made up of the Basilica and its museum) and the Palace of Tau were added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1991.
The primary areas in Reims focus in the center and around the cathedral and other major monuments, and the main squares: the Place Royale, with a statue of Louis XV, and the Place Cardinal-Lucon, with an equestrian statue of Joan of Arc.

The Rue de Vesle is the main street and crosses the town from southwest to northwest, passing through the Place Royale en route.

The Place Drouet d'Erlon in the city center is packed with lively restaurants and bars, and several attractive statues and fountains. During the summer it is filled with people sitting outside the many caf├ęs enjoying the summer sun, and in December it has a lively and charming Christmas market.
