The best sparkling wine in the world can be found in the Champagne region of northeast France, just an easy day trip from Paris.
Separated from Provence and the rest of France by a mountain range, the city’s Greek, Roman and north African history is still close to the surface.
The left bank is the centre of Paris's bohemian culture, art scene, and chic shops.
This 60km road trip wends its way through eastern France, past stone-built villages and steeple-topped churches, to the origins of some of the greatest wines in the world.
