City of Canals

Lovers of literature will adore Amiens as the hometown of author Jules Verne, along with the Somme canal linked to the Canal du Nord that runs through the town to the English Channel.
Get out of town with these interesting Amiens side-trips: Thiepval Memorial (in Authuille), Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial (in Beaumont-Hamel) and Lochnagar Crater (in Ovillers-la-Boisselle). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens, take in nature's colorful creations at Les Hortillonnages d'Amiens, get engrossed in the history at Maison de Jules Verne, and take a stroll through St-Leu.

To see maps, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Amiens trip maker site.
