The Citadel 

> Health pass not required
We would recommend taking a trip to the Citadel on Rue des Français Libres, just a stone’s throw away here (dating back to 1598 and redesigned by famous architect Renzo Piano as the home to the University of Picardy Jules Verne) and discover these utterly incredible buildings. While you are there, you really should climb right to the top of the large quarters and gaze at the panoramic view over our city and its iconic buildings.
