There’s plenty to do in the festive city of Amiens. The town beats to the rhythm of music, cinema and theatre festivals, some of which take place in the street. In the city centre, 700 shops attract fashion or interior design lovers. And the sportier population is spoilt for choice, too, with international competitions: ice hockey, football, handball, etc.
At the weekend, families are drawn by the hiking or mountain bike trails around Amiens. And in the summer, city dwellers can get away from it all to the poetic Baie de Somme in under an hour.
