About 120 km north of Paris, in France, lies a city full of history. This city, called Amiens, has a population of about 135,500 and was first settled by one of the principal tribes of Gaul called Ambiani. The Gaul were issuing coinage from here during the 1st century BC.

The first identified site of a Palaeolithic culture called Acheulean was found in Amiens. Primarily, the economy of Amiens was the textile industry, and they became most famous for their velvet. They also produced chemicals, soaps, tires etc. However, now, the inhabitants have shifted their main focus from textile and industry to telecommunications technology. 

The climate of the region of Amiens is mainly warm and pleasant summers and cold and rainy winters.
