To see something built by the Romans still standing is impressive. The whole park is a wonderful place to rest or admire the statue of Colbert as well as the well maintained flower bed. If you are there on a Saturday, do not miss the market. The original market placed is a Unesco sight just walk those meandering streets and... More

We walked what seemed like miles and the thing is being restored (good) but it is wrapped in plastic...and a number of hobos sleeping on the benches in front. I say skip until it is ready to view...

Not sure how long the restoration will take - disappointed that you could not really make out the detail. I imagine impressive - I've never been to Rome, nor have seen Roman ruins, I guess I maybe easily impressed. But an easy walk from the train station and the WW2 memorial is across the street.

One side is fully covered and you will not see any of the original beauty unfortunately. If you walk around the gate you will have a peek view of the ancient gate, but from a distance as it is currently fenced. Please check the Reims website when restauration is completed.

It was a mystery wrapped up in a lot of tarpaulin. Has to be done to keep it in good nick of course...unfortunately now is that time. Hopefully when you visit it will be uncovered ..Do check first.

Take this opportunity to feel the roman history up close. This building has withstood the weather of centuries.

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.
