La Petite France, which is why it is sometimes compared to a little Venice. Where the district takes shape, the river forms an astonishing delta made up of five arms. Seen from the air, they look strangely like the fingers of a hand trying to grasp the whole city. At once peaceful and impetuous, the Ill fills the district with all its charm. Take a stroll along the quays and admire the reflections off the colourful facades of the old houses.
