This is a nice place to just sit and gather and plan the next thing. Plenty of passing people to enjoy watching and no traffic going past the steps. On a sunny day I would recommend a rest here!

I think this smaller square is better than the its bigger brother around the corner. It seems more intimate with its cafes and bars all with the backdrop of some magnificent architecture. This then leads off into the old town.

Place du Theatre is a very beautiful and large place in the center off Lille. You find many shops, restaurants and bars on that place.
