Amiens [1] is the capital of the northern French region of Picardie. 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.

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.

Get around


Amiens' 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. (May not be open in winter).
