Train Reims → Metz
Duration 48 - From $31
The toast of France, bubbling over with history Paris is filled with incomparable art, bistros and bouchons and world-renowned sights. After a few days in the City of Light, it would seem right to toast to your travels. So why not head to the Paris Est Station and hop on the high speed TGV for a 45-minute ride to the capital of Champagne ? Reims has a wealth of wonderful things to see. The train station is located on the northwest edge of downtown, but a short walk will bring you right to the middle of the action. Of course, champagne is everywhere. All of the famed brands (Veuve Cliquot, Tattinger) have a commercial outlet for wine tasting, and you may even visit their legendary vaulted cellars where you’ll learn everything about the making of the wine of kings.

"There is no direct train from Reims to Charles de Gaulle Airport. We had to take the train from Reims to Paris East Station and walked for 10 minutes with luggage to Paris North Station. Taxi at such peak hours is not an option. It was raining and the streets were full of traffic and people. Finding the right counter to buy a ticket from Paris North Station to the airport is very testing. Having queued for half an hour, we were told that we needed to go to a counter at the corner of the big ticket hall. Why you cannot get all kinds of ticket from any ticket sale counter ? There were no English signs on this. The train from Paris North Station to the airport was fully loaded with commuters. The particular train that we took stopped abruptly short of two stations. All passengers were told to leave the train and wait for the next train to the airport. We did not understand the French announcement but followed those surprised looking passengers to disembark. Again, we had to take our luggage and braced the rains to take shelter, and waited for another train to come. Why there was not a better way to go from Reims to Charles de Gaulle Airport ? Or there was one but not shown up when we booked online ? I would like to have some feedbacks so that we can be smarter travellers next time. "
