This Cathedral was absolutely breathtaking. The height of the ceilings took my breath away. Then at the altar end you are met by beautiful stain glassed windows. There is so much to see and admire here inside and out. The doorway is covered with statues of all sizes. These people were great craftsmen and the cathedral has been very well... More

This cathedral is a must if you like visiting churches - it is actually more impressive than the Notre Dames in Paris but with much less tourists! Read up about it before you go, I wish we had, as we had not much time to explore unfortunately and knowing what we were visiting would have helped us to enjoy the... More

This is a breathtaking building, far larger than NotreDame Paris. We couldn't get enough of it and it was ideally located outside our hotel door.

This Cathedral has amazing architecture with fascinating detail. The interior is beautiful. You need to spend a bit of time inside to really appreciate the interiors detail. The memorials to the ANZACS are very moving. It is good to have a guide so that you don't miss out on the stories about the exterior and interior of this Cathedral.

You could walk freely around this cathedral, taking in the beauty of the architecture, paintings and artworks. No queues. Spent time here.

Visited this Cathedral during our 2015 ANZAC day pilgrimage to the Australian National War Memorial at Villiers-Bretonneux. Great place and there was no charge for entry unlike other places in Europe. We're not even the slight bit religious but the architecture was just amazing. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Notre Dame d'Amiens is a huge and impressive cathedral if you take the time to slowly wander through it. Don't just come in the side door to see the tablets dedicated to several countries for their war efforts. Walk slowly around the chapels and see what else there is in the magnificence of the stained glass windows and sculptures and... More

One of the great cathedrals of France, huge, full of interesting chapels and dedications. A history lesson in a visit.

There is information in Emglish and for those following the trail of the WW1 battle fields there are the memorials to the Australian, New Zealand Camadian... More

Although Amiens itself isn't very impressive -- the town seems pretty dead -- we were blown away by the utter beauty of this cathedral. Every detail of the art and architecture-- from the outside sculptures to the choir stalls to the truly awesome interior -- makes it a worthwhile stop on a trip through the region. We stayed overnight in... More
