One hour from Paris, close enough to Belgium to go clubbing, Lille is small & lovely, theres plenty of history, brilliant beer & mussels.
I spent in Lille 3 months summer time - the most quiet period for the city due to students holidays.
A full tour should cover:
- the Citadel, as one of the best examples of the military architecture
- La Vieille Bourse (the old stock exchange building), a remmant of the Spanish occupation, combined with French and Flemish style
- The Grand Place, a highlight of the Lille and its Goddess, a symbol of the resistance against the Austrians
- Porte de Paris (Paris gate)
- Monnaie Street, where coins were made.
- Palais Rihour, old living place of the Dukes of Burgundy
La vieille bourse - the old stock exchange great place to trace and buy ancient books specially during la Braderie. more travel advice
Leave your first weekend of September free... that's when Lille holds its famous Braderie, a huge outdoor trade fair... more travel advice
