I appreciated the setting, the canal and the interesting buildings, however, the area looked worn down and touristy. Perhaps my view was coloured by the horrifically bad meals we had in one of the canal-side restaurants.

A bit bland and run down. Was expecting it to be prettied up with flower boxes etc. looks like it is largely a student accommodation area near to university campus. This was the city festival weekend so we assume this was as good as it gets! So much else to see that is nicer in Amiens.

We were told that Amiens was the "little Venice of the north" and I reckon it's this area with its canals and bridges that has earned the city this nickname. It's a beautiful part of the city, with plenty of eateries to choose from. We took plenty of lovely photos here.

The old buildings here a impressive. Browse the side streets and don't forget to look up... so many gorgeous, old facades. Shopping was tempting but I experienced a little French arrogance when I had the hide to ask for a different size shoe. Oh well, I can't speak French so my problem. Good restaurants and people watching, as we were... More

The St-Leu area has beautiful views and many restaurants. There is a parking lot across the canal in a paid lot.

We took the Office of Tourism's tour through St Leu and although we think the area is lovely, it is presently in a very sad state, especially at the northern part of the tour. Hopefully the mayor of Amiens will allow funds to help to revive it - there is such character here! We got off the 'track' at one... More

Very friendly and busy restaurant, lots of large pork on the menu, really difficult to chose. Desserts were good as well, would have liked to tried more.

The St.Leu area is quite diverse beginning with the shops and cafés along rue Vanmarcke which are obviously serving the thriving student population. Crossing over the bridge towards Quai Bélu one finds the touristy area comprising several bars/restaurants (but usually open on Sundays which is a bonus). Have eaten in some of these restaurants and they are not that expensive.... More

We walked through this area both during the day and night and it has a great feel to it. It's just behind the glorious cathedral, so easy to find. We had coffee in one restaurant and dinner in another, and it seems that where you go in the area there is a good welcome. Well worth a visit.
