My husband and I are going to Paris in April. We plan to spend a day at Versailles, but the rest of the itinerary is up in the air. I am reading a biography of Barbe-Nicole Cliquot Ponsardin (the woman who made Veuve Cliquot into a major champagne house) and would love to rent a car and take a day trip to Reims. Will taking such a side jaunt make our time in Paris too rushed? I suspect it might, but am mighty tempted by the lure of the adventure of car rental/champagne house touring/seeing some more of France!
