Lille

3.7

Cultural Heart of Northern France

On the Deûle River near the Belgium border, Lille has a very active cultural life as France's fifth-largest metropolitan area and the fourth-largest urban area with a large college student population. As a medium-sized city in the Nord-Pas de Calais region of the Nord department, it lies on the Brussels-Paris-London train connection, and the TGV and Eurostar trains stop here. The subway in the long-distance train station Lille Europe is an attraction of its own--a big mural entirely covers the large stairwell hall. The pedestrian streets just past Grand Place, such as Rue de Béthune and Rue du Sec Arembault have small pubs and restaurants housed in buildings with beautiful 1930s and 1940s architecture. There are hundreds of little patisseries selling cakes as well as exquisitely decorated chocolates. Lille is in Nord. Take a look at our France vacation planner to refine the details of your trip to Lille.

Where to stay in Lille

Using Lille's outstanding public transit system allows you to explore its various districts easily and quickly, regardless of which part of town you choose for your base. Luxury hotels dot the city's central areas, offering good views for high prices. A much cheaper option just a short subway ride from the city center, small hotels and private B&Bs offer cozy rooms and good food. If all you need is a place to sleep and no extras, consider staying at a hotel or hostel near the city's main train station.
