Perhaps Chartres cathedral is a finer specimen of gothic architecture, I don't recall and could probably argue that one, but that is the only thing of interest in that town, to me. It's just an ordinary small town.
Reims cathedral is not a bad example, has wonderful windows and sculptures on the outside, and to me, is a more important site and has more historical ties of interest to me. Such as in Monet's works and Joan of Arc history.
Reims is more than an hour, of course, I think it was between 90-120 minutes, but not bad.
