Amiens is the capital of the northern French region of Picardy. As well as its own attractions, the city makes a practical base from which to explore the area of the First World War's Western Front located nearby.[[1]

Get in

Trains from Paris at least hourly, normally about €18 each way. Journey time one hour ten minutes for fast Corail trains, slightly longer for stopping TER services.

Amiens has a decent bus system.

See

Amiens's cathedral is one of the major works of the French Gothic style, with a fine facade and interesting sculptures.

The Hortillonages, market gardens separated by small canals, are visitable by boat.

Do

  • Jules Verne Museum. The small but cosy Jules Verne Museum is well worth a visit for those who are interested in literature.
  • Amiens Circus. The Circus building is quite unique in France and Europe, even from the outside. If you can, try to get a seat for one of the events taking place there.
