Train Travel

It's easy to get to major towns in the region by train. Most sites can be reached by regular train service, except for the Champagne vineyards, which require a car. There are frequent daily services from Paris (Gare du Nord) to Beauvais, Amiens, and Laon (taking up to two leisurely hours to cover 140 km [87 miles]). The super-express TGV service covers the 170 km (105 miles) from Paris (Gare de l'Est) to Reims in 45 minutes. Cross-country services connect Reims to Épernay (20 mins), Châlons (40 mins), and Amiens (2 hrs) via Laon (35 mins).
