Somme

North of Paris, the Somme region is at the crossroads between Flanders and Paris, the capital of France. During World War I, the Somme region was turned into battlefields which are moving and interesting to visit.

Verdun

Located at the crossroad of France, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium, Verdun region has always been a strategic area.
