Picardy - France

Picardy is an historical province of France, in the north of France. The historical capital and largest city is Amiens.According to Edward Gibbon,Whimsical enough is the origin of the name of Picards, and from thence of Picardie, which does not date earlier than AD 1200. It was an academical joke, an epithet first applied to the quarrelsome humour of those students, in the University of Paris, who came from the frontier of France and Flanders.

Going on a weeks holiday near Noyon in Picardy. Never been before, if anyone has what are your top places to visit whilst there. After this we go on to Traben Trarbach in Germany-again top tips please!

Ken Guru alias aussie_oz :
"I can't tell you anything about Picardy, but from Traben-Trarbach you should go to Trier. It's the oldest city in Germany and had been one of the Roman Capitals. Also I'd recommend taking a Rhine River Cruise from Mainz / Bingen to Cologne. Mainz and Cologne had been founded by the Romans as well, and each city has a very famous cathedral. The Rhine Valley is a UNESCO world heritage of nature, very impressive with all those villages, vineyards, and castles. You could try wikitravel or wikipedia also for some french destinations For France (Picardy) I recommend buying a Michelin Green Guide. Very good travel guides."
life :

Inconnaissable :
"You mean, Miss Picardie ! First, come to France and then apply ! tout simplement"
emma :
