On our last day in Champagne, we were supposed to drive to Verdun, but I think we misjudged the distance a bit. So due to the lack of sleep the night before and me being the sole driver we decided instead to go to Soissons. A decision we didn't regret, as Soissons was one of the nicest cities we visited our trip.
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.
