I’m not a high end shopper, so it was nice to find this shopping street with regular priced items. Lots of good eats and specialty candy shops. Don’t t forget to look up! The buildings are beautiful!

This is a pedestrian shopping street as you find in all French cities. The shops are mainly (inter) national shops that are found all over the country. Mixed in between are cafe's, restaurants and waffle shops. The best thing is people watching.

Many shops and cafes/restaurants line this street that connects the north/south sides of the old town core. A stroll won't take that long to complete so give it wurl. Recommended.

Yes it's a short shopping strip. I'm staying around the corner and walk past it every day. It's the end of June so you'd expect it to be busy but it's not really that bad. The crowd comes and goes so it really depends when...More

I'm not sure how one goes about reviewing a street, but here goes: I had read about Rue de Bethune before visiting Lille, but happened upon it by accident (it's hard to miss). The street was much more crowded than any other in Lille at...More
