If you are travelling for business or pleasure please choose from our selection of self catering accommodation in Amiens. Amiens is a city and capital of the Somme department in Picardie, in northern France. It lies120 km north of Paris. Amiens Cathedral is the largest cathedral in France. Work started on it in 1220, built to house the head of John the Baptist, brought back from the crusades in 1206 and a magnet for pilgrims. It was completed in 50 years and is a masterpiece of engineering, Gothic architecture carried to extremes. Two towers of unequal height frame the west front. Restored in the 1850's, it is famous for its statues and reliefs, which inspired John Ruskin's "The Bible of Amiens". In the city, the picturesque quarter of St Leu is a pedesterianized area of low houses and flower-lined canals with waterside restauants, bars and artisans' shops, while to the east, Les Hortillonages is a colourful patchwork of marshland market gardens, now a protected natural site.
