DESTINATION AMIENS

Amiens is the capital of Picardy and is located to the north of Paris. It is in the centre of the main European business trends and has always been a trading area with Northern Europe thanks to its geographic position and the Somme, its river.
This friendly, lively city with around 140,000 inhabitants will astonish you with its natural setting and the creativity of its population, one of the youngest in France.

Adopted city of the famous writer Jules Verne, where he wrote most of his " Les Voyages Extraordinaires ″, Amiens possesses a prestigious cultural, architectural and industrial heritage. Named a " Villes d'Art et d'Histoire ″ in 1992 mainly due to its 13th century cathedral Notre-Dame d'Amiens, one of the largest in the world and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, like the Belfry. The Museum of Picardy, the archaeological garden or even the Marquenterre bird sanctuary just to name a few, animate this city which has one of the richest green spaces in France and has excelled in the knowledges of Hortillonnage (market gardens) since the Middle Ages.

The Picardy region and Somme department rank number one for various crops, and their solid expertise in the furniture and textile industries. The city of Amiens which has always traded with Northern Europe via its river, the Somme, has made a name for itself in the market of mass-produced consumer goods, sub-contracting in the car industry with Valeo and Goodyear, chemistry with Proctor & Gamble and is becoming a major player in customer relations and ICTs with numerous call platforms. Boasting a young population and with approximately 30,000 students, Amiens deserves its university town name.

In addition to its heritage tourism or its Cathedral which welcomes more than a million visitors each year, Saint-Leu which is an old quarter built on the water, as well as its amphitheatre. Amiens is a great spot for nature tourism. The landscape around the Bay of Somme and its preserved natural spaces which reach almost into the centre of the city are an undeniable proof of this. Let yourself be enchanted by the ambiance of a visit to the famous Hortillonnages, these marshes extend over 300 hectares right outside the city centre, the festivities which take place all year or even the gourmet specialities of this land such as duck pâté, salted lamb terrine, smoked eel, ficelle picardie (a type of crepe) and many other surprises!
