Fresh Air

Nature and fresh air at the Amiens Festival Ville Art et Paysages

The beauty of the urban French landscape is in its sense of balance. Buildings have breathability thanks to revamped pedestrian walkways; commerce is complemented by open squares. Landmarks become observation points from which the city unfolds. Far from the urban jungle aesthetic, the French city is full of places to pause and revitalise: on a garden bench, on a quayside along the river, or in a park with views of the horizon.

Rethink your idea of a city break.
