La petite Venise du Nord

Amiens floating gardens near The Originals Hotels

Amiens is also known for its magnificent hortillonnages, colourful floating gardens surrounded by canals, which can be explored by "barque à cornet".

The fruit and vegetables produced there are sold every Saturday at the "market on the water" in the Saint-Leu district.

It is this market and the many canals that run through the city that have earned it the nickname "Little Venice of the North".
