Quartier Saint-Leu d'Amiens
It's THE place to go for Amiens night life but that's not all. In the daytime you can stroll along the banks of the Somme, through narrow cobbled streets and enjoy seeing the smart and colourful little houses. Stop off at a café terrace to admire the Cathedral, have dinner in a riverside restaurant.
In the Middle Ages, water and mills set the pace of the city. Narrow streets with historical names attest to the city's past based on crafts. Today, art galleries, bookshops, boutiques and antique dealers mingle with the inhabitants of this district with its narrow and colourful houses. By foot, boat or in a horse-drawn carriage, take the time to discover Saint-Leu. Sit on a terrace to admire the Notre-Dame cathedral, or try out one of the "trendy" bars later on. Early birds will enjoy the "Water market" on Saturday morning.
