Discover the most important sites of the Somme battlefields with a trip down memory lane as you visit one of the bloodiest battlegrounds in the history of mankind. The scars of the Great War are still visible: trenches, mine craters, obliterated vegetation and villages razed to the ground. Follow your driver-guide and discover the area which was home to one of the most terrible battles of the Great War. Plunge into the history of the 1916 Battle of the Somme by visiting the Historial Museum in Péronne. You will discover the villages of Villers-Bretonneux, Péronne as well as La Boisselle, places where the Australian, British and Canadian troops earned renown. All of these places bear witness to our unwillingness to forget the past.
