    Superbe visite! J’ai eu la chance de visiter la Cité du Champagne en petit comité ce qui donne la possibilité de poser des questions et de comprendre parfaitement l’histoire de la région. Très heureux de terminer la visite par une dégustation – je suis même reparti avec un une bouteille! Je conseille vivement!

  2. Un must-do pour découvrir la Champagne historique

    Il est rare de pouvoir rassembler autant d’histoire sur la Champagne en un seul lieu. Et finalement, on comprend beaucoup mieux au travers de l’histoire, la Champagne, son environnement et son développement présent comme futur. Visite interactive pour tout public!

  3. La cité du Champagne was a delight!

    We did a number of tours in the region but felt our time at la Cite du Champagne was something special. Our guide Juliet was very knowledgeable and patient with all our questions as we went through the museum, the view of the vineyards from the museum’s main hall was really beautiful and the personalised tasting at the end, supported by Juliet and her very friendly colleagues, and accompanied by a great conversation with the members of our tour, all contributed to a lovely and memorable afternoon. We felt inspired to invest in quite a number of bottles of Collet too to continue the magic at home in London. Thank you Juliet and team.
