good carport at the train station, everything in the old city center on walking distance, friendly north-french people, bog choose in restaurants, great shopping, second-hand book market, beautiful museums
Very nice town for a short trip. Could certainly eat well for days. Not that much to do in the actual town. But it has nice coffee shops, two museums and lots of old Europe cobblestone streets.

On a warm, sunny day a friend and I enjoyed strolling around the old town of Lille. Beautiful buildings in the square and side streets are well worth seeing, although unfortunately some neglect is obvious. I found it a shame that many properties had fast...More

The Lille Europe train station is closer to the local shopping centre while Gard de Lille is closer to the old city. That said, you will still need to walk another 5-10 minutes to get to the more appealing parts of the old... More
