Picardie tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Some of France's finest cathedrals are situated in Picardy. Its capital, Amiens boasts an impressive Gothic cathedral and if this is not enough - try the popular cathedral cities of Reims and Laon.

The Somme River winds through Picardy and is home to extensive wildlife and estuary land.

To the south of Amiens, much of Picardy is flat agricultural land.

As you head southeast, the countryside has wooded hills that begin to merge with the plains of nearby Champagne.

Here you will find the historical towns of Soissons and Compiegne, which is famed for its royal palace, built for hunting, on the edge of a forest.
