How exciting would it be planning a barge cruise trip to the Champagne region of France?

No matter what type of trip chosen, a Champagne cruise is a trip everyone involved is sure to remember for a lifetime.

A barge cruise to Champagne allows visitors to tour the beautiful countryside on guided or independent adventures. Relax in a vineyard during a wine tasting, nap under a tree following a casual stroll through the meadows and dine on scrumptious cuisine to cap off the day’s events. Don’t forget partaking in the numerous musical shows, theatre events and festivals occurring throughout the year.
Located 75 miles from Paris and near Meaux, the famous Champagne house of Moet and Chandon are located along the River Marne in the city of Epernay. Vineyards sprinkled throughout the undulating plains stretch beyond view and are breathtaking as Mother Nature paints them in vibrant colors of green and gold with the changing of seasons from summer to fall.

There, visitors behold one of the most beautiful medieval cathedrals in the country. Not only were kind of France crowned there, but one of the most famous crowning ceremonies took place by Joan of Arc crowning Charles VII.
