Description: Cité Souterraine de Naours is an underground city that is absolutely incredible – at 33m below ground level it covers more than 2km with 300 rooms and 28 galleries.
Location: At Naours, 10km north of Amiens via the N25, taking the D60 from Taimas to Naours. The entrance to the grottes is on the rue des Carrières.
General Info: Entrance price is €10* for an adult, €8* for a child between 4 and 12 years old. From 1st February to 15th November the grottes are open for a few hours each morning and afternoon. From April to end August it is open from 9AM to 6.30PM.
Our recommendations: Take some warm clothing – in common with most caves it will be cold underground, even on a hot summer’s day. Plan to take a picnic with you to eat in the park at the end of your visit.
For the children: Whilst fascinating, this place is probably more likely to capture the imagination of older children. There is a land train, mini golf, a children’s play area (including a large bouncy castle) a couple of windmills and a water mill to visit. Make it a half day visit and you should be able to keep them interested!
