"Explore on Foot" Lille Transportation Tip by joegardham

Lille Transportation: 44 reviews and 79 photos

We spent all dya Friday and Saturdya walking round Lille. it takes about 15 mins to walk from one side of Lille to the other. Don't be fooled thouhg, this doesn't mean it's small!! Because the streets are mostly quite small, you can spend days walking round the centre and not go down the same street twice!
Neither of us are big walkers, but it is FLAT everywhere and very pedestrian-friendly.
I imagine a bike hire (available at Station and Zoo) would be a great way to get around too, but we didn't do this.
I read there's a fantastic Metro system, but I can't imagine you'd ever use it unless you were travelling to the outskirts.
Another thing I can't recall seeing were any Taxi's. I'm sure they're there, but we didn't see any!
