Drive out from Paris. Enjoy the beauty of the region. Don't drink and drive.
A road trip through the Champagne region to the east of Paris. Ideally would be to go here with a company of friends, so you can change each other behind the wheel. You will drive along the local vineyards, visit Reims, Epernay, and some magnificent castles, get inside some of the most famous wine houses and, of course, will be able to enjoy the French cuisine. At the end of the trip – a walk around Paris is included.
