Is three days in Reims too much?

We wondered if 3 days in Reims is too much time...or not? We plan on getting a train from Paris and spending 3 nights in Reims. Thought perhaps of spending one day in Epernay.

On the fourth day we need to be at CDG by 10.00am as our plane for Australia leaves at 1.00pm. Is it possible to get a train direct at this time of the morning?

Would appreciate any suggestions on how we might spend these 3 days....Cathedral looks great, champagne houses are also on our plans.

Thanks for any advice

all depends on what you want to do. www.reims-tourism.com has long lists of things to do and see in the area, and their staff speak very good English, so can help you make reservations or give advice.

A day in Reims and a day in Epernay are a great idea -- but you need to plan on being somewhere nearer to CDG the night before your flight. Trains generally run on time, but a last-minute, one-way ticket to Australia is (IMO) far too high stakes to hope that the train makes it on time.

I agree with Sunshine, not for the first time. Although CDG is on the same side of Paris as Reims, the rail journey between them is not straight forward. The only option that I can see that would get you there before 10.00 leaves Champagne Ardennes TGV at 7.59, and that does not have a connection from Reims centre so you would have to get a taxi to the TGV station and kill an extra hour and a half at the airport. If you return to Paris during the previous day, it would be much less stressful.

Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. It looks like only two nights in Reims then! Thank you

Suggest you ask that on the Paris forum.
