Picardie in the Hauts de France region
Don’t leave our region without seeing Amiens!
You’ll be met by a riot of colour!
Your day will begin with a lovely boat ride at the Hortillonnages, the floating market at the centre of Amiens; then you can stroll around the historic quarter of Saint-Leu on the banks of the Somme. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat!
Make some time at the end of your day to visit the Cathedral, a fine example of Gothic art. At nightfall, you’ll be enchanted to discover it in full colour.
Don’t leave Picardie without giving your taste buds a treat! Sweet or savoury, the local people love food and will enjoy sharing their specialities with you: Ficelle Picarde, bisteu, bouchot mussels, Salicornia and gâteau battu cake are dishes that you simply must try!
