Air France has con­ve­nient con­nec­tions on a daily ba­sis from both Toronto and Mon­treal. On this trip I stayed mostly in three­star ho­tels that had great char­ac­ter, and had some his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance. In Amiens, the Ho­tel Le Prieure (www.ho­tel-prieure-amiens.com) is lo­cated just around the cor­ner from the 13th-cen­tury Notre Dame Cathe­dral. The foun­da­tions of the prop­erty go back to the 12th and 13th cen­turies. In Ar­ras, the l’Hô­tel de l’Univers (univers.na­jeti.fr) was a for­mer Je­suit monastery in the 17th cen­tury and is close to restau­rants and shop­ping in Ar­ras. In Lille, I stayed at the four-star Novo­tel Cen­tre Gares. (ac­corho­tels. com/gb/ho­tel-3165-novo­tel-lil­le­cen­treLille is a big city and this ho­tel is close to the sta­tion and other ameni­ties.
