Paris, the national capital, is situated about 75 miles (121 kilometers) southwest of Trefcon.
It's no surprise the area around Trefcon is such a hotspot for travelers; the region features numerous interesting cultural and natural attractions. Roughly 9 miles (14 kilometers) away you'll find Saint-Quentin. Set aside a day here to see the Saint Quentin Basilica and Butterfly Museum.
Around 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the south of Trefcon is Compiegne, a regional center which is home to Chateau de Pierrefonds, Clairiere de l'Armistice and Compiegne Hotel de Ville. Compiegne Golf Club, Palais Nacional and Musee de la Figurine Historique are more interesting sights that should be included on every traveler's schedule.
If you need to escape the elements, you can't beat Picardy's excellent history museums. These are ideal places to soak up some of the region's culture and find a special souvenir or two.
The Picardy area offers those in the area with a number of laid-back avenues to experience the region's wide open spaces, such as cycling and bird watching.
For many, the attraction of leaving home is exploring new flavor sensations. Take the time to visit the region's cafés and restaurants. Check out some of the local meals, including flamique a porions (leek tart) and tart au maroilles (cheese tart).
When it is time to leave Picardy, no doubt you'll bid this region a teary "Au revoir / À bientôt" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be leaving with special memories and photos that you'll be able to enjoy for years to come.
