This was located right across the street from our hotel. Very interesting to look at. Also it appears to have what I surmise as bullet holes in it. So you have history from Roman times and WWI?

From a distance it doesn't look like much but there still remains some very good detail if studied closely. It must have been a really impressive gateway.

The place just draws you in, it's only a few arches but seeing the bullet holes just makes you think of the sacrifice of the soldiers

Part of a Roman Wall built in the 3rd century the gate stands oddly in a park without much immediately around it. To see it at it's best stop by and have a look at dusk just as the lights are coming on around it. Then go and hit the many nearby restaurants

Located in the cross roads leading into the centre of town the only way you would miss this is if you had your eyes closed! No pomp here, just a gate surrounded by a glorious park. There is very little information about it at it's locale, read up on it via internet or information provided by the tourist office. Great... More

This is a Roman ruin which is close to the railway station and if walking from the town centre, is on the way to the Museum of Surrender.

It stands alone as one of the few Roman parts of the town that is left but very little information on the monument itself more information is to be found on the audio tour of the city

Not that much to see in Reims, you only need one day, so add this to your list, only because you can see something built so long ago. That is cool. Used as cover in WWII probably, it's in a bad shape, not only that, but the surrounding area is wasteland, and the ground at the gate is used for... More

If you're heading over to the Salle de la Reddition across the railway tracks, this is on your way. Spend a few minutes musing on the faded carvings on this Roman ruin in the park. Nothing too exciting here, but it's fun to think that you're standing where the Romans stood nearly 2000 years ago.
