We actually liked this one better than the Reims Cathedral. Gorgeous stained glass windows. You get off at the St Timothy bus stop (also where you get off for the Taittinger champagne house)

A beautiful place to visit. Not as busy as the Catheral so not as noisy. On a good day, with the lights coming in through the windows, the place looks stunning.

This Basilica is beautiful and tranquil, A working Basilica. The interior is outstanding. A piece of true French history. In my opinion it is better than the cathedral of Reims. Don't miss this if your in the city, entrance is free though if you wish to leave a donation towards the upkeep it will be gratefully received.

So much history here, and the basilica is well preserved. Don't miss the statue grouping of figures on your right as you enter, the windows and the tomb of Saint Remi.

Absolutely beautiful and a must see. Easy to reach from centre of Reims on number 4 or 5 bus. Very near Martel. Tattinger and Champagne house's. All walking distance from St Remi so visit the church en route to champagne house. Would be a shame not to visit St Remi.

A wonderful place, light and airy. It was being used for a service when we arrived and it was great to see that the church was nearly full. The organ was wonderful.

My wife and I visited the church and tomb of St Remi. The city is very easy to navigate and interesting to see all the bistro's and Italian restaurants outside the ped mall downtown. You can drive there, but easy walk from Cathedral or city center. Start your visit outside and walk the grounds. The statues and architecture of the... More

Everyone visits the Cathedral in Reims (which they should!) but few wander towards this vestige of extreme importance: this is the place where the first king of the Franks, Clovis, was christened by Saint Rémi, who gave his name to the town of Reims. This church is far more intimate and architecturally interesting than the cathedral, but that's only my... More
