The visit can be in French language or in English. So fun and so "chic" to visit Lille on old genuine Dutch bikes ! Like in Amsterdam along the canals, let's discover history of Lille, former capital city of Flanders built on waterways This is the easiest and most complete way to visit our city... The tour lasts 2 hours.
