The winegrowing region of Massif de Saint-Thierry is a wonderfully green landscape of vineyards and forests surrounding a collection of villages whose histories date back to the coronations of the kings of France and even further back. From Reims, exit at Tinqueux and follow the trail along picturesque footpaths.


The itinerary starts with a visit of the Reims Cathedral and, close by, the Palais du Tau, home to the Cathedral’s treasures and a selection of the original statues. Walk around the village of Saint-Thierry and admire the 12th century community chapel, a former charter house with beautifully sculpted capitals.

 

 

Back in Reims, don’t forget to visit the magnificent basilica of Saint-Remi and its museum, protected by UNESCO’s world heritage list, as is the city’s Cathedral and the Palais du Tau.
