France Travel Guide to Picardie Province

Picardie is one of the regions in France where there are many places to visit and activities to enjoy when you travel in France.

Some of France's finest cathedrals are situated in Picardy, plus a royal and majestic atmosphere will enchant all that see the chateaux of Pierrefonds, Compiègne and Chantilly.

These architectural jewels, which are cleverly illuminated at night, rest in surroundings of gentle valleys, thick dark forests and beautiful gardens and definitely lend themselves to a very memorable experience.

Picardie Province of France

Its capital, Amiens boasts an impressive Gothic cathedral and if this is not enough - try the popular cathedral cities of Reims and Laon.

Geographically, the artificial character of the region is also apparent.   Although Picardy is a vast flat plain of open fields, famed for the gruesome Battle of the Somme, the south of Picardie (historically part of Île-de-France) is a very scenic hilly area with large forests and great for exploring.

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.  But 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.

Gerberoy and Senlis will plunge you back into the Middle Ages, whilst the Asterix Park or the Sea of Sand will keep the children amused.
