My husband and i will be spending a couple of days in November touring some of the First War sites, including Premont, where his grandfather fought with the American 30th Division. We plan to hire a guide (there are plenty it seems) and also want to visit to Somme battlefields, memorials, etc. The question is where to base ourselves for two nights. We care about a nice hotel, good food, and access to othe rsights as well. On short review it seems to me that Amiens has more to offer than St-Quentin (where one of the guides we are talking with suggests we stay), but I don't really know. The other thought is to spend one night and half day in Lille before heading to this area and just one night in one of the other towns. Please let me know your experiences and thoughts. Thanks.
