About France

There is a lot to see in Amiens and around once you come by train. In the city, explore the amazing cathedral Notre Dame, dating back to the 12th century.

Its remarkable volumes, statues and stained glass windows will thrill you. Another unavoidable of the city is the Jules Verne’s house. The great author lived here at the end of the 19th century. Stroll along the streets of the old St Leu area, a pleasant place to find shops, buy souvenirs and to relax on a café’s terrrace.

You can also visit the Museum of Picardie (name of this part of France), in which you will discover archeological, medieval and fine Arts collections.
