Amiens pre or post your stay - Gothic and medieval sights abound in this simply gorgeous city. Don’t miss a boat trip around Les Hortillonnages (floating gardens), a visit to the 800-year-old Amiens Cathedral listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a wander through the boutique-lined alleyways of Quartier Saint-Leu. Linger longer, so you can take in the incredible archaeological finds at the Musée de Picardie and the wonderful eccentricities at Jules Verne’s old home.
Villers-Bretonneux - Thousands of Australian tourists travel the Remembrance Trail through northern France every year, and Villers-Bretonneux in the Somme region is at its very heart. This was the site of the first tank battle in history, as well as epic clashes during World War I, now memorialised by world-class museums such as the Australian National Memorial and the Sir John Monash Centre.
