France’s Champagne country is celebrated for the sparkling wine that bears its name and its beautiful medieval towns. Explore Reims and its Cathedral of Notre-Dame, a Gothic treasure and UNESCO World Heritage site. Tour the acclaimed Taittinger estate and enjoy sampling its famed Champagne.

Cruise the Marne River for a view of the vineyards from the water, and stroll through the village of Hautvillers where Dom Pérignon, a Dominican monk, perfected the Champagne-making process. Discover Épernay, where bottles of bubbly are stored in tunnels carved into subterranean chalk deposits.

Many World War I battles were fought in this region. Visit the site of the Battle of the Somme. Drive through the Meuse-Argonne region to Verdun to visit Europe’s largest American military cemetery, the resting place for more than 14,000 American soldiers.
