A walk along France's beautiful River Somme

Musicians, painters and photographers all try to bring out the tranquil beauty of the River Somme, in northern France. It's an ideal destination for those who appreciate walks rich in history, thanks to the Haute Somme little train. This railway line was built by soldiers for the famous Battle of the Somme during World War I. Visitors can also discover the Chateau de Long, an 18th-century wonder that has been entirely renovated by its owner, Claude. FRANCE 24 takes you on a tour.
