Lesser known than other destinations in the City Guide series, Reims has long been an important French city historically and culturally, not to mention the renowned sparkling wines produced in the surrounding region. Named among UNESCO’s World Heritage sites and less than an hour away from Paris by train, Reims is a city enriched by many treasures and attractions, with something for everyone: a burgeoning art scene, expanding cultural offerings, and wine tourism that is continually enhanced with new experiences.
For this volume, Louis Vuitton explores the entire Champagne region, stopping at vineyards from the valley of the Marne to the mountain of Reims. With more than 150 independently-selected addresses, the City Guide features special guest and Reims-native Yuksek as well as photos by Denis Bourges of Tendance Floue, portraits of local figures by Jonathan LLense, illustrations by Laurent Cilluffo, and recommendations from a Michelin-starred chef, a fine arts curator, a performer born into a show business family, and a stained-glass artist.
The new Reims City Guide is now available below or in bookstores worldwide, with a version also offered free of charge in the Apple App Store until this year’s harvest.
For the past 20 years, the Louis Vuitton City Guide series has explored 30 of the world’s leading metropolises, with an offbeat look at local fashion, design, contemporary art, food, and culture. Each volume invites writers and guests from diverse backgrounds to provide a completely subjective view of the most beautiful hotels, the best restaurants, the quirkiest shops, and the most famous historic places.
