We weren't able to see much of the arch as it was surrounded by scaffolding and is currently under renovations. But the surrounding park was nice.

We walked by this ancient gate enroute to the Museum of Surrender. If you've never been to Rome or seen a Roman ruin, I'd highly recommend a look. Unlike the rest of Reims, the gate was undamaged during World War I. Nearby is a huge WWI memorial so you can see other sites along the walk.

Interesting to see. Very old and you can see end route to champagne house's or museum of surrender. Certainly worth a look and good photo opportunity.

As indicated, not well sign posted but worth the short walk from the city. Old and impressive given its age though minimal details are available to explain its background.

It is in an easy 5 min walk from the train station. Stop by, take a look, take some pictures. Check mark. It is OK but if you really want to see something magnificent that was build during the time of Roman empire then get to Pont du Gard on Provence.

They really should have a plaque explaining this old Roman gate from before 100 AD, and we had to find out from our champagne guide that there were 4 gates to the city originally. It stands in a park, easy to find, neat to think the Romans were here so long ago!

The Mars gate is pretty impressive when you consider just how old it is and still in pretty good condition. There's not a huge amount to see so it is genuinely just a 5 minute trip but it's only a short walk from the centre so it's definitely worth a visit and a few pictures

I visited this attraction and found it stimulating and amazing. What i didnt find was anyone selling Mars or any other confectionary. Very disappointing.

This is a triumphant arch built by the Romans between 180 and 230. It is in pretty poor condition, but interesting to see anyway. You only need about 10 minutes for a visit.
