We visited this area with a group of students. It is very nice and I would love to return here during the summer to see it when the festival season is in full swing.

2 think most had to be re-built after the Great War finished the atmosphere and style is not unlike many more older squares. Put to good use as a market it is a living breathing thing where people meet and congregate. All around are shops, bars, hotels and places of interest. It is the heart of Arras and the go... More

Stunning place. Feels like you're in Bruges with the Flemish architecture. Lots of cafes to watch the world go by from. Lots of little shops to browse.

It's lovely just to wander around the three squares of Arras, taking in the harmony of the architecture. Amazing to think that this was all rebuilt after the First World War. Shame that they allow parking on the squares, though.
