For many, the Amiens Cathedral of Notre Dame is the primary attraction.

Housed in a large, 19th century building, the Museum of Picardy offers a wide range of exhibits dating back 2000 years. The museum houses paintings and archaeological items. Amiens was home to the famous author Jules Verne for nearly 20 years in the late 19th century. At the Maison a la Tour you can find an extensive collection of items in reference to Verne detailing his life and literary work. Near the city is a series of marshes and their "hortillonnages". These gardens are built on small islands within the marsh and can be toured either on foot or by boat.
