Please don't bother making your way here - you can't see it - completely covered by scaffolding and sheeting. Not even a billboard or photo of it to show what's underneath.

In the local guidebooks and pamphlets the Mars Gate is noted as having its restoration completed by Jan 2017. Just note it is still wrapped up and restoration appears to have stalled pending fund raising.

It would be unfair to give 49 or 51% as I simply do not know, you see the whole ancient monument was totally and perfectly wrapped in white plastic It was totally fantastic Or It was underwhelming Delete as appropriate Sorry Orca

Porte Mars is still under wraps with nothing to see. It didn't appear that there was much work going on.

This is currently undergoing renovation and is totally enclosed. Also the nearby market (open Wednesday) had only a few stalls open mid-week,

The Porte Mars is under wraps, and there is nothing to see. In Italy, they would have had a large picture of the monument on the wraps, but this is not Italy. So, nothing to see, but this is a good thing as it means...More

Sadly the whole thing is under renovation lime most monuments in Reims now including the Notre Dame Cathedral. This place seems pretty neat and cute but definitely do not waste your time there for now.
