Today, the beautiful city of Reims and the iconic international reputation of champagne are often the fi rst things you associate with this region. But explore a little deeper to discover where American, Portuguese, Russian and Commonwealth soldiers fought alongside French in the battles of the Marne and the Ardennes. A stay in Reims, Charleville-Mézières or Sedan will provide a good base for visitors.



A remembrance tourism trip to Northern France would not be complete without a trip to this wonderful new museum in Meaux. Opened in 2011, it houses an unrivalled collection of 50,000 artefacts from the war. It tells the story of the genesis of the war from a historical perspective but also brings alive the experiences of ordinary soldiers and civilians with fascinating relics and personal memorabilia.


Although never a scene of fi ghting the people and the city of Paris were greatly aff ected by the war. We take a tour of the museums and sites that bring to life the involvement and suff ering of the city’s inhabitants. The Musée de l’Armée at the Invalides and the Nissim de Camondo museums are must-see sites but there are also quieter corners of Paris which still have echoes and reminders from one hundred years ago.
