Although most of its historic buildings were flattened in World War I and replaced by drab, modern architecture, those that do remain are of royal magnitude.

Reims sparkles with some of the biggest names in champagne production, and the thriving industry has conferred wealth and sometimes an arrogant reserve on the region's inhabitants. Nevertheless, the maze of champagne cellars constitutes an other fascinating sight of the city. Several champagne producers organize visits to their cellars, combining video presentations with guided tours of their cavernous, hewn-chalk underground warehouses. for a complete list of champagne cellars, head to the tourist office, 2 , rue Guillaume de Machault, next to the cathedral.
