    back to the middle age for a historical and informative visit on trade and the trades of provins. The influence of the fairs of champagne on the region and internationally. Not to be missed

    The audio-guide is included in the price of admission: feel free to take it because the comments are interesting and short enough to not end up bored. They really are an essential complement to the visit which, without these explanations, would be much less interest. I recommend starting with a visit to the underground: you learn a lot of things that can better take advantage of this visit.

    Beautiful building which was covered during the fairs of Champagne market. The staging of several paintings representing merchants and presenting various trades in the middle-ages. Interesting visit with audio guide included. Friendly staff.

    I'm sure this is interesting to see in the summer time but dont bother going in the winter. The tourist locations in the old city are only open from 2pm to 5pm. Makes me wonder why they even bother.

    Authentic medieval village. Well kept and in great state. Not visiting ruins but an actual live village with inhabitants and school. Managed to keep a great balance between the history and daily life.

    Take your time to listen to the audioguided tour with your headset. Interesting. About medieval economics. :)
