Picquigny – 15 June

Picquigny is small but nice, on the river Somme.  Today we got the train to Amiens for a wander round, which turned out to be a big but somewhat uninspiring place on first impressions.  Cathedral is nice, but not the best in France, and the town center lacks the charm of nearby Reims or Troyes.  Off north tomorrow.  We’ll look at some guide books when we get home and give Amiens a second chance, as the campsite is great and the transport links are good, if a bit infrequent.

Not the best cathedral in France

Maybe not even the best cathedral in Amiens
