Discover Amiens with one of its inhabitants

Amiens and the Amiens conceal hidden treasures. One of the inhabitants is waiting for you there, as a friend, for a walk. He will introduce you to the city, give you good tips and advice for guided tours, reveal the gourmet specialties and where to taste them… You will be pleasantly surprised by this quiet town which is worth the detour…and worth the return! As Jules Verne wrote to one of his friends: “At the request of my wife, I settled in Amiens, a well-behaved, polite city of even temper. We are close to Paris, close enough to have a reflection of it, without the unbearable noise and the sterile bustle”.

She or he will share their experiences and anecdotes with you; will tell you its good addresses; and of course will be happy to answer questions that will allow you to better understand the city and its surroundings. Moments that we hope will remain unforgettable for you.

“The Greeters are volunteers, so the rides are free.” To launch the Antenne d’Amiens, we created an association called: Amiens as Amie and this entails us some operating costs: Membership in the national network, IT management, Insurance, Advertising…
Also, if you enjoyed the ride and you wish, you can prepare a donation and give it directly to your Greeter. The latter then undertakes to transmit it in full to the treasurer of the association. We thank you in advance.


Who are we?

We simply offer you to get into the more everyday aspect of our city, with its markets, its shopping centre, its bistros…
We are volunteers from Amiens, members of the France Greeters Federation. We want to introduce “our Amiens” to visitors, as we would for friends. We are neither guide-interpreters nor qualified lecturers, but curious inhabitants, passionate about the riches of our city, who speak several languages, and want to meet and welcome people from outside Amiens, the region or to France.
During the walk, the “greeter” will walk with you in the streets of a neighborhood he loves for the richness of its past or for its architecture, its markets, its cafés, its craftsmen or its artists…

What do our visitors say after a walk on Amiens with a greeter

“Visite d’amiens correspondant à nos demandes (histoires et légendes de la ville, façades de la ville). Visite documentée. Michèle a fait de cet visite un échange agréable. La visite historique était ponctuée d’anecdoctes. Nous avons été enchantés de son intervention qui nous a donnée les clés de l’histoire d’Amiens et de sa richesse.

Sept 2018 “Our day with Alix in Amiens was very fun. Sometimes communication was a bit of a challenge, but we managed to make ourselves understood on both sides. We saw and learned of things we would not have had we been on our own. Alix put in a lot of effort to be sure that we learned as much as possible about Amiens. We would recommend this program to anyone who visits.
