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.

Our hotel was only a few blocks from this ancient landmark. During the day, we were able to experience it up close and appreciate the age and artistic beauty of the arch. At night, it is illuminated and makes for some great pictures. If you're sightseeing in Reims, you are only a few minutes from here. It's worth the quick... More

Worth having a wander up to the Roman gate, which is beautifully lit in the evening. Stunning example of Roman architecture outside of Italy.

After dinner, I walked by the Mars Gate, all that remains of a Roman gateway into the city. It is small and sits in the green space by the Place de la Republique. A lovely sight at night.

The place is an small construction near to Boulingrin Market and Museum of Rendition. It is interesting because of its age: the gate was one of the four entrance gates to Reims in the old ages. Visitors can have some information by reading an information board just next to the gate (in French and English). Unfortunately, it is possible to... More

It was great to see that this ancient city gate is still standing. Look up as you walk through to see detailed carvings.

This widest remaining Roman Arch in the world, from 3 AD, is well worth the short visit needed to come and gaze at this historic monument. Beautiful.
