We strolled, part followed a guide book & just lost ourselves

I've often found that the best way to explore is to have an idea about where you are going but then just follow your senses and get lost in the experience ... That was just what... read more

A very peaceful and picturesque part of town, with little canals, bridges, timber-framed homes, and cafes and restaurants. The homes here are painted with bright and cheerful colours, and we spent a lovely afternoon strolling through the area and taking pictures.

A very safe area to stroll around after dark with numerous bars and restaurants. By day, it is lovely to see the different architecture as you wander down the narrow pathways exploring. On Saturday morning there is a good local produce market. We enjoyed our walk alongside the canals, crisscrossing them over the numerous bridges. Lovely .

Such an interesting area of the city just to wander and get lost in. You will see so many different types of buildings an architecture along the canals. Then emerge along side a great cafe bar.

My biggest surprise on visiting Amiens were all the canals throughout the city. There are restaurants along them, and the University is built in the middle of them. You can easily walk along the canals and over the quaint bridges. There is a large Farmer's market on Saturday mornings right along the canal.

St Leu area is worthwhile to see with its old houses and channels. Located downtown very close to the cathedral with nice view of the Cathedral. Good place for taking pictures.

having read some mixed reviews about the area I was not sure what to expect. What I did get was a pleasant surprise as I strolled around the area with my friends. We were looking for a place to eat so were naturally drawn to the riverside restaurants by the Somme. We found that on one side of the river... More

Lots of nice restaurants overlooking the river. The old town is pretty and nice to stroll around before choosing a place for dinner

This is a nice area of Amiens to stroll around. Houses are nice and well kept, and you get a goot appreciation of the city's canals. Worth spending an hour or two here.

I was a bit worried about what this area was like having read the other reviews on here, but it was absolutely fine! We had two really good meals with friendly staff in each and were very happy to sit here and watch the world go by. It is not as pretty as some other areas (Honfleur for example), but... More
