Recommended
The capital of the Marne has the discreet charm of a provincial town. In a region redolent of wartime memories, it retains some fine half-timbered houses, old bridges, large public gardens ideal for strolls and above all some remarkable churches: the cathedral, a fine example of Gothic architecture; Notre Dame en Vaux with its collection of carved columns and, a few kilometres away, the superb basilica of Notre Dame de l'Épine, representing the pinnacle of Gothic art.
