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

I really like St-Leu because it's so "Frenchy" with its historic canals and little bridges, the Somme river, the cafés with nice terraces for some cold beer or a glass of wine, etc.. Great place for a romantic walk and to enjoy all the beauty of this charming city. However, if you want to stop for a meal, just be... More

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
