Notre dame is certainly a highlight of our quick look around Amiens. It is a beautiful example of fine architecture and oh so grand. Definitely worth visiting while in the area.

Impressive gothic architecture and religious artefacts. It is worth taking the time to see the place as well as watch the CHROMA audio visual show at night during the Summer.

So much more impressive than Notre Dame in Paris, in my view. High and airy. Interesting panels on the preservation of the cathedral during the WW11 bombardments.

We always visit cathedrals in cities if we can and this is one of the most fantastic. If you haven't visited before you must go during the day for a free look inside and then return in the evening at 10 for the light show...More

What an amazing cathedral. I am sure the idea for the throne in Game of Thrones must have come from here. The inside is just breathtaking and the carvings magnificent. We were lucky enough to see the son et lumiere which finished with the lights...More

There is a tour that takes you up there and you need to check with the ticket office and shop to the immediate left of the Cathedral. Google Amiens cathedral Tours for more. Don't miss it.
