Located on France's northern border with Belgium is the Nord-Pas-De-Calais region.
Nord-De-Pas-Calais was featured prominently in both WWI and WWII. The vast network of memorials and museums attest to this fact.
The capital of Nord-Pas-De-Calais is Picardy. The region is just a few hours via train from Paris.
When visiting be sure to enjoy the fine selection of locally brewed beers. Yes, France makes great beer too, although this fact is usually lost when compared with France's neighbors to the north and east.
As with many areas of Europe, Nord-Pas-De-Calais has it's share of Roman ruins.
The city of Lille is the last stop on the Eurostar before England. Many a weary traveler has missed the train station in Paris only to wake up, luckily, in Lille.
