Need Help with France Itinerary for Alsace and Champagne Region

Jump to last reply

We are traveling to France for a Walk and Wine Tour in the upper Burgundy/lower Champagne region. Unfortunately, we have had many interruptions trying to plan this trip so now I need some help and suggestions since it is getting closer to the departure date.
We are flying into Paris arriving the morning of Aug.29th and departing from Paris on Sept. 20th. We will be there for 3 weeks. This first week we will be on the Walk and Wine Tour (actually walking through small villages). We start our walk in Les Riceys on Aug 30th and finish in Chablis on Sept. 4th.

The 2nd and 3rd weeks we are on our own. We are thinking of renting a car at the Paris CDG airport for 3 weeks. We will be bringing along our GPS. If we don't rent a car at the airport, we are looking at Auxerre for car rentals. It iseems to be very difficult to find good transportation from Troyes to Les Riceys. I think there is a bus availability - not sure. I can't seem to find any information on it.

We would like to spend time in the Alsace region using Colmar as a home base and then in the Champagne area using Reims as home base. What towns would be best for visiting near Colmar and Reims?

Driving toward Alsace we thought maybe we might see Vézelay and spend a night or two in Beaune. (We have been to Beaune before.) We are looking to take a wine class in Beaune if possible. Another thought was to spend an extra night in Chablis (?), then on to Beaune for a night.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
