Les Hortillonnages d'Amiens, also known as the "Floating Gardens," make a spectacular patchwork of 300 hectares (1.6 square miles). Surrounded by the Somme and Avre rivers, the floating gardens have been cultivated since the Middle Ages. The gardens are in a marshy area surrounded by 40 miles of canals sometimes called "Little Venice of the North." You can walk along the footpaths or see the gardens from a boat called the Barques à Cornet.

  • It is hard to believe that this beautiful site is located just a 10 minutes walk from the town centre. The boat ride was excellent value for money and enjoyed by all of my family.

  • Really nice experience, the guide was good and knowledgeable. The place itself is really a green oasis within the city and well worth a visit.
  • The floating gardens, like one of the 10 wonders of the world. Great experience for the entire family. Very good tour with knowledgeable gondoliers.
