Chaulnes is located some 70 miles (113 kilometers) from Paris, the national capital.
From major tourist drawcards to lesser known gems, Picardy is wonderfully endowed with natural and cultural attractions. Holnon, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the west, and Noyon, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northwest of Chaulnes are worth visiting if you're keen to explore this region further.
Organise your transportation and head to Amiens, a transport and retail hub for the area, located some 25 miles (40 kilometers) away from Chaulnes. The city offers a range of points of interest, such as Musee de l'Hotel de Berny, Jules Verne House and Zenith Amiens. Hortillonnages Floating Gardens, Samara and Amiens Cathedral are some of the other attractions that should be high on every visitor's itinerary.
Enjoy a moment of tranquility at Picardy's monasteries.
Tap into the wisdom of the locals with your pick of city walking tours, cycling tours and guided nature walks.
Local menus are an excellent way to get to know the area you are in. So take the time to visit some of Picardy's eating establishments. Flamique a porions (leek tart) and tart au maroilles (cheese tart) are two local specialties to taste.
When the time comes to leave Chaulnes, use the last of your euros on last minute keepsakes for the folks at home and say Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
