Just the area to amble round, looking at the buildings and the mediaeval layout. The few shops are small and "touristy" but you are not there to shop. It isn't entirely traffic free and the cobbled surface is difficult for the less mobile, but otherwise a pleasant amble between the Cathedral and the restaurants. Weekend evenings are more exciting as... More

Many shops with a variety of goods. A good Subway shop for a snack in the middle of old town. On holidays everything is closed. You have to park outside the old town and walk the streets.

I had lunch in St. Leu, the old quartier of Amiens. I was disappointed that there were only restaurants there and was hoping to do some shopping too, but unfortunately there wasn't one shop. I decided to have a Galette at the only restaurant towards the end that makes Galettes. I ate indoors as it was a cool day, but... More

Lovely area with lots of restaurants/cafes and bars to choose from, all on the river. The views along the water were lovely with very old bridges

We had two walks round St Leu - the first one was disappointing but on the second one we went round the back way which is very quaint and pretty, and it's pleasant finding the bars and restaurants overlooking the little canal.

This part of Amiens is amazing, the buildings and cobbled lanes give you the feeling you have gone back in time, one of the better medieval villages I've seen. We were there in winter when it was cold and a bit of snow around so not sure what its like during the warmer months but i imagine it would be... More

Lovely houses and restaurants near the river. Beautifull view of Cathedral Notre-Dame. Only 15' walk from Ibis Hotel Amiens Center.

I have witnessed this area develop over the years. It is now an animated centre of bars, cafes and restaurants with a few shops and sections of the university.Some parts look a little shabby now but the section by the water is interesting. The area by the cathedral has recently been developed and the flowers are stunning.
