Picardie, or Picardy in English, has a great location: right on the English Channel on the North, and just a quick car ride south is Paris. It prides itself on being one of the oldest and most historical regions of France. Its capital, Amiens, is the most well-known city. The 3 departments in Picardy are Aisne, Oise, and Somme. The Chantilly castle can be found in Picardie as well. The Picard dialect is spoken in Northern France and most of Belgium. Writer Jules Verne spent time in Picardy and even wrote a book there.
