Amiens is also an attractive place with lots of heritage sites: its cathedral is the hugest of France; the district of Saint-Leu is nicknamed “small Venice of North” because of its river; the Hortillonnages and its floating gardens; the house of Jules Verne, famous French writer… and so more to discover!
Moreover, the campsite you will live in is next to the river called “la Somme”, near Chemin du Halage, a bikeway of 120km from Peronne to Saint-Valery-sur-Somme. The campsite is located near a park (Parc du Grand Marais) which offers during the summer free sports activities (canoeing, climbing, archery …).
