Paris, which is the national capital, is located 70 miles (113 kilometers) southwest of Monampteuil.
Savvy travelers often use Monampteuil as a launch pad for further explorations. This sought-after tourism region is blessed with plenty of great attractions. Go to Laon, and visit the Notre-Dame de Laon and Musee de Laon. Laon is 7 miles (11 kilometers) away from Monampteuil and a good place to visit. Another option is to make your way over to Soissons. It's about 13 miles (21 kilometers) from Monampteuil and is home to the Abbaye de St-Jean-des-Vignes and Soissons Cathedral.
While you are on holiday in Monampteuil, see Reims. Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) away, this regional transport and shopping hub is where you can find Mumm, Reddition Museum and Ruinart. Auguste Delaune Stadium, Tau Palace and Automobile Museum are also good to visit.
Every place has its unique history and Picardy is no exception. The old towns in these parts are well worth visiting.
Make sure you throw in a camera and water bottle and spend a few hours with an expert local guide on one of the fascinating guided nature walks, cycling tours and city walking tours.
As your adventures here draw to a close, spend what's left of your euros on last-minute mementos and bid a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to the local characters you have met and the spots you've been.
