Nice walking tour

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.

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.

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

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

It is nice to walk to St-Leu part of Amiens just directly behind the Cathedral de Notre Dame d'Amiens. There are restaurants and boutiques along the river to stroll through and even though it was raining, we thoroughly enjoyed the scenery.

Like some of the previous reviewers we found this place run down and sad looking. Pictures in guide books had been taken of the one small picturesque part we saw, other parts were scruffy with rubbish around . I didn't feel it justified the title Venice of the North it's not a patch on Colmar . We did not stay... More
