Arras— 2 nights
Arras is just small enough for you to enjoy over a leisurely walk along the two great squares providing a splendid collection of 155 unique façades of Flemish baroque architecture, with stop at the many bars and cafés along the way for refreshments.Carriere Wellington and Cathedrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Faubourg-d'Amiens Cemetery and Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Arras: Musee Somme 1916 (in Albert), Maison de Jules Verne (in Amiens) and La Coupole (in Saint-Omer). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Musée du Louvre-Lens, take an in-depth tour of Centre historique minier - Musee de la Mine, admire the masterpieces at St Vaast Musée des Beaux-Arts d'Arras, and take a stroll through Place des Heros.
