We took a short walk in the garden and after climbing a very narrow spiral staircase we enjoyed a last view over Champagne from the top of the chapel.
It was a beautiful and warm day, the last really good one during our holiday, so it was a great way to leave Champagne behind and head back towards Paris next day. Six days really do go way too fast.

It is one of France's ancient cities, and when arriving there we already had a view of the church towers from the ruins of on old convent. We ate our lunch in the convent ruins and finished fittingly with a religieuse au café. Afterwards, we took a nice walk around the city and passed the cathedral, market hall and finally sat down for a drink before returning to the car.

We dropped the car for one day to explore a bit more of Reims and also visit one of the bigger Champagne producers (Vranken Pommery) and get a tour in their cave. I think we realized too late just how far on the other side of town it was, so we arrived exhausted and dehydrated. Good thing they had lots to drink there. After the tour, we found ourselves held captive as it was raining cats and dogs for a while, but it was nice to have another excuse to hop on a bus instead of walking the long way back home.
