Strasbourg in France is a nice city for a weekend break or a stopover when traveling through West-Europe. In only a few hours of being here, I’m already charmed by Strasbourg and discover that there are more than enough sights to entertain me for a weekend.
In Reims in France, you can see many sights in a short time. And that’s a good thing because that leaves a lot of time for outdoor cafes and champagne!
Not far from the famous Mont Ventoux is the French village of Mollans-sur-Ouvèze. You probably won’t find it in any travel guide. So don’t expect an endless supply of activities and sights, but you can count on infinite peace and quiet (assuming you’re not going to climb Mont Ventoux).
Châlons-en-Champagne: a great little town. Châlons-en-Champagne in France is one of those towns where you don’t have to run around hurriedly to see everything. It’s easily manageable in a day and a bit less urban than Reims or Épernay. Discover what you can do in Châlons-en-Champagne: from boat trips to champagne houses and restaurants to hotels.
In Reims and Épernay, I get overwhelmed with all the champagne around me – champagne is literally EVERYWHERE. But in Troyes, I need to hunt for bubbles – even though the city IS located in the Champagne region. In this quiet city, you will find more “half-timbered houses” than champagne houses, and that is actually pretty awesome too.
