"A Social Visit" Lille by DSwede

Lille Travel Guide: 429 reviews and 1,103 photos

I took opportunity to come to Lille to visit some friends since I was working close by in Belgium. While I did walk the city, most of the visit was social and involved more cafes and pubs than anything else.

    Last October I went to Lille for the first time and really liked it.

      Yes, it was a lovely town! Glad you agree! Too bad I'm on the other side of the world, or I'd gladly go more frequently. Hope you are having a prosperous New Year!!
