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.
