Another couple of gloriously sunny days in France were to be had at Reims. There is of course, the obligatory Cathedral, which in this case just happens to be one of the largest and more important ones in France as most French Kings were anointed here. The cathedral is rather awesome, even with the part shroud of scaffolding obscuring some of our views. Apparently, Reims is more or less the capital of champagne territory, so it looks like its a change ...
We started the day (after a quick breakfast in our room) by walking around the Medieval town of Provins. Being as UNESCO Heritage site, most of the old town was much more 14th Century, instead of the most common 18th and mid-19th Centuries.

We had lunch at a very busy Brasserie ( must be a micro-brewery) and had wine, ...

The buffet breakfast included in the stay was excellent with croissant and breads, meats and cheeses as well as yogurt and fruit - a good set up for the day, We decided to explore Reims on foot so set off to the Cathedral which is very impressive. Cathedrale Notre Dame was commissioned in 1211 and mostly completed 100 years later with some stunning Gothic features and most famous for being the place where France's kings were crowned. Joan of Arc brought Charles VII to ...
