Amiens, the capital of Picardy, is home to the largest Gothic cathedral in France, which is twice the size of Notre Dame in Paris and has been designated a World Heritage Site by Unesco. The little cobbled streets around it give the city a medieval appearance. To the north, the canals of Saint Leu are reminiscent of Amsterdam, while to the south, 19C rows of terraces mingle with features of post-war urban planning, symbolised by a tower: the Tour Perret. Finally, the charming marsh gardens (hortillonages) can be visited by boat.
