Here are some facts about Reims:
  1. Reims (sometimes spelled as "Rheims" in English) is a city in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France.

  2. Reims is located about 90 miles (144 kilometers) to the East-Northeast of Paris.

  3. As of the 1999 census, Reims had a population of 187,206, with 291,375 people living in the metropolitan area.

  4. People from Reims are known as Rémois (males) or Rémoises (females).

  5. Reims is believed to have originally founded by a tribe of Gauls known as the Remi, in around 80 BCE.

  6. During Julius Caesar's conquest of Gaul, the Remi allied themselves with the Romans, and thus gained special favor from the Roman Empire.

  7. During the barbarian invasions of the Roman Empire in the 5th century, Reims was attacked by the Vandals (in 406), and by Attila the Hun (in 451).

  8. Evidence of Reims' Roman history can be seen in the Mars Gate (French: Porte de Mars). This is a triumphal arch dating from the 3rd century, and is 108 feet (32 meters) in length by 43 feet (13 meters) in height. The Mars Gate was the widest arch in the Roman world.

  9. Christianity has been established in Reims since at least 260, and Reims was the site where King Clovis I of the Franks converted to Christianity.

  10. The archbishop of Reims consecrated the Kings of France for many centuries, from Philippe II Augustus (anointed in 1179) to Charles X (anointed in 1825).

  11. Reims is the site of Reims Cathedral, the place where French Kings were traditionally crowned (it served a similar role to Westminster Abbey in the United Kingdom).

Reims photo book, Champagne (100 photos) : Europe series 18
 
Product Description:
Reims is the largest city in Champagne region in northern France, with an area of about 47 square kilometers and a population of about 180,000 people.
Located just 45 minutes east by train, it can be visited on a day trip from Paris, so a lot of tourists from all over the world visit throughout the year.
In Reims, there are numerous historical buildings, including the Notre Dame Cathedral where the coronation of the king of France was held. Among them, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Saint-Remi Basilica and the Palace of Tau have been registered as UNESCO World Heritage sites.
In addition, Reims is a production center of champagne which represents the Champagne region, and there are many world-famous major champagne houses such as Pommery, Veuve Clicquot, G.H. Mumm, and many small and medium sized houses, some of which open their doors for tours and tastings.
In the photo book, I have gathered 100 photos, including mainly the historical buildings and the scenes of the city, along with beautifully colored autumn leaves by which I was so impressed.

Product Description:
Recognized for more than a century for clarity, accuracy and detail--- even the military has relied on Michelin maps--- Michelin offers over 200 selections of guides and maps for cities, regions and countries in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. In-house cartographers, or mapmakers, produce each map and atlas and leave no stone unturned. Everything from major roads to the tiniest routes is depicted on Michelin's maps to allow travelers to go off the beaten path with confidence.
What makes Michelin maps and atlases stand out? Michelin maps are frequently updated and specifically designed with travelers in mind. Michelin's cartography, user-friendly format and cross-referencing abilities with its renowned guidebook collections are paramount.
The clear, clean and uncluttered style of Michelin maps is compounded with extreme attention to detail covering scenic roads, footpaths, panoramic views, emergency telephones, road widths and more. It's this kind of detail that can, for example, help North American tourists avoid surprises while traveling down narrow roads that are often hundreds of years old. Buildings, monuments, park trails and government offices are highlighted, too.
When it comes to ease of use, Michelin has really done its homework. Michelin maps and the patented Michelin fold make it a snap to refold, even with one hand on the wheel. All Michelin atlases are available in spiral format, too. That's the number one binding preference according to independent consumer research.
Michelin's unique cross-referencing system also makes mapping out travelers trips a cinch. Maps and guides throughout the Michelin collection work together with universal symbols directing to more information. Michelin map outlining the region.
