Private Amiens Cathedral Tour
This private Amiens Cathedral tour takes you to one of France’s more flat areas, the heart of Picardy, and the impact of viewing the country’s tallest complete cathedral could not be more striking. Notre Dame de Amiens stands out vividly from a distance, making the remarkable unity of its pure Gothic style all the more evident.
It is a 13th century structure, the last of the very tall cathedrals to be built, and it is notable for its three tier interior elevation and an important ensemble of stone statues that decorate the main façade and south transept. It is often mentioned as the best example of High Gothic church architecture, and nowhere is it easier to view and comprehend the importance of the innovation of flying buttresses in building cathedrals that soar to the skies.

Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the tour of the Loire Valley [Custom Loire Valley Day Tour from Paris of 2 chateaux and 1 wine estate]. Let me start by saying the best part of the trip was meeting you and listening and learning about the history of France and specifically Chenonceaux. Your comments and guidance throughout the day made the experience far more than just a sight-seeing trip. Lunch was great and so were Amboise and the wine tasting. I can’t thank you enough for putting this tour together for us, we will enjoy the memories for years to come.
