Beautiful cathedral. High ceilings with beautiful light. There was no cost to enter and walk through. Didn't require a huge amount of time to visit, but was a well worth the stop. A must see when in Amiens.

There is a tour that takes you up there and you need to check with the ticket office and shop to the immediate left of the Cathedral. Google Amiens cathedral Tours for more. Don't miss it.
