On Day 14, we visited the medieval town of Provins. The city used to be a large trading hub in the XII and XIII centuries- a little like Dubai today. Provins was particularly well known for its Champagne fairs that attracted traders from all over Europe. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its intact and authentic ramparts, dungeons, churches, underground tunnels, ancient houses, vaulted underground rooms as well as its several equestrian and falconry shows attract a large number of tourists every year.
