Day 2

A morning exploring a UNESCO treasure

For your second day, we begin with a visit to Notre Dame-en-Vaux Collegiate Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. This church contains magnificent stained-glass windows dating from the 12th to the 19th century, as well as a carillon of 56 bells, installed in 1858, considered to be one of the largest in Europe.

Would you like to visit the carillon? We can arrange a special tour for you with an expert guide.

Just a short distance from the church, the Musée du Cloître de Notre-Dame-en-Vaux displays a remarkable collection of 55 statue-columns, with decorative historiated capitals, cornices and pillars that adorned the cloister that was built between 1170 and 1180, and which was destroyed in the 18th century.

An afternoon

of Cabu and Carbot

After lunch, discover another side to Châlons by observing the city through the eyes of Cabu.

Visit the Duduchothèque, a venue dedicated to the childhood drawings of Jean Cabut, known as Cabu (1938-2015).

A permanent exhibition allows you to discover Cabu’s talented world through a series of illustrations from his youth.

Next, head to the centre of the city to the Musée Champagne Famille Carbot.

Olga is your host and will take you on a journey through time, from the depths of the Baltic Sea, through our special terroir, to discover all of the aromas of champagne and what makes it sparkle.

This museum offers a really fun alternative to traditional champagne house tours.
