Amiens

3.7

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. History buffs will enjoy exploring the Western Front area of World War I and touring several world heritage sites in the capital of the Somme department in Picardy. For a unique adventure, go to the Amiens Circus building, a metallic structure designed by architect Emile Ricquier, and book a seat for an event they host so you can see the intricately painted interior by contemporary artist Ernst Caramelle. Be sure to make enough time to enjoy an Amiens macaroon, a sweet delight that goes back to the 16th century and is made from Valencia almonds, honey, and bitter almonds. Amiens is in Somme.
