Not-to-be-missed events, historic sites to explore, plus arts, culture and plenty for the family to enjoy in the splendid region surrounding Paris.
Ramparts, dungeons, knights and underground tunnels are all on the bill in the fortified town of Provins. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it was once the stronghold of the powerful Counts of Champagne and an important market town. Merchants from all over Europe and the Orient flocked to do business at its famous Champagne fairs. You’ll need a full day to roam the ancient cobblestone lanes, explore the warren of underground quarries, the 12th Caesar’s tower and climb the ramparts girdling the village.
