The old part of the city is full of interesting places and buildings. If you use the city tour bus to begin with, you will have a good orientation of what to see. People-watching is certainly a good way to pass time in these busy...More

Historical city centre of Lille. Expect a a lot of narrow and winding streets, shops and great bars to have a drink. Definitely worth a visit when you're in town.

Lille is a funky town, in a good way. Quirky, mixing flemish, spanish, english and french vibes, and very much alive. The locals are very nice, don't let the accent scare you. Wind and waterproof clothing and shoes are required at all times to be...More

Bustling and vibrant, this is a lovely city to visit - plenty of attractions, pubs and restaurants and offers something for everyone. The only downside was that there is clearly a homelessness problem, lots of people on the streets and I didn't feel particularly safe...More

Vieux Lille is a great mix of sights and sounds. You definitely get a sense of the history of the city and the Flemish influence. The streets are full of beautiful old buildings that have been re-purposed for interesting little shops. The Musee de Hospice...More
