Givet is located some 140 miles (225 kilometers) from Paris, the national capital.
Champagne-Ardenne is brimming with things to do and see, from tourist hotspots to quiet, secret places that are waiting just for you. Bogny-sur-Meuse, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north, and Charleville-Mezieres, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north of Givet are worth visiting if you're keen to explore this region further.
A great way to really get a sense of a place is by getting an understanding of its history. While here, take the time to see the area's fine fortresses. If the weather looks good, head outside and discover Champagne-Ardenne's open-air markets.
This place also has a range of high-altitude adventures such as hot air ballooning.
Local foods are a great way to learn about an area. So take the time to visit some of the region's restaurants and cafés. There are lots of interesting food options locally. Try andouillette de Troyes (pork sausages) or bourdin blanc (white sausage). Don't think a meal should be enjoyed without wine? Taste Moët & Chandon Champagne or Taittinger Champagne, two regional options.
When the time comes to return home, you'll be bidding Givet a sad Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
