Amiens city guide
Amiens, a very attractive northern France city
Sometimes called the "Little Northern Venice" because of its canals, Amiens is a 134.000 inhabitants city located in the North of France. In the middle of the Paris-London-Brussels triangle, it is a one of the most attractive city of the country.
There is a lot to see in Amiens and around once you come by train. In the city, explore the amazing cathedral Notre Dame, dating back to the 12th century.
Its remarkable volumes, statues and stained glass windows will thrill you. Another unavoidable of the city is the Jules Verne’s house. The great author lived here at the end of the 19th century. Stroll along the streets of the old St Leu area, a pleasant place to find shops, buy souvenirs and to relax on a café’s terrrace.
You can also visit the Museum of Picardie (name of this part of France), in which you will discover archeological, medieval and fine Arts collections.

Excellent trip on the way to Amiens, great way to see the beautiful French countryside and not expensive at all. The only downside is the trip back from Amiens to Paris was very full and despite there being odd spare seats nobody would move to allow even the children to sit together, fortunately this was only for about half the journey distance.Overall though a great way to travel at speed and see the real countryside without spending a fortune.
- "Paris Nord to Amiens" Mary-anne b. 04/10/2013
excellent service; was a crowded early trian (think the uni students were returning to Amiens after summer holidays) but all were well behaved and I had the advantage of reserved seat. Possibly because the train was very full, it was a bit late leaving Paris Nord; this resulted in me missing the train to Villers Bretonneux by about 1 minute!! However the staff at Amiens station provided a voucher for a taxi to Villers- great service and really appreciated (there were an older Austalian couple who had also missed the connection so I took them with me as well- they were eqully impressed with this fantastic service) Return trip was also very good- left on time, clean and very comfortable train. What I especially liked was the no mobile phone policy-very considerate for those travellers who want to rest, to read, to gaze out the window without the yakety yak of mobile phone users!!! I would definintely use the train (especially in France) when next I travel to Europe.

I travelled on the Paris to Amiens train and returnon 3rd September. It was an excellent service, punctual, comfortable and good value for money. i travelled first class which I recommend to all travellers if you book early enought o get a good price. The facillities at both stations were clean and well appointed.

Travelled from Amiens to Paris on 11/9/13, found the trip very comfortable
- "Question on price?" Trevor d. 17/09/2013
The train was clean and comfort was good. Plenty of room to store our large bags. Station was being worked on so not much seating while waiting to board. On time and easy way to travel. We did this trip on a Saturday and the return trip on a Thursday for about half the price of the Saturday trip? The Thursday train had a lot more people aboard.
