How Far from?
Grand buildings, art galleries and charming shops characterize this cultured city in northern France. This is of course, without including the wonderful cuisine and numerous cafes that line its streets.

The old town with its cobbled streets dates back to the 17th century. At its heart is the Place du General du Gaulle, a popular meeting place for locals containing many cafes and shops. Amongst the most interesting buildings are La Vieille Borse, the old stock exchange, and the Palais des Beaux-Arts, which houses an impressive collection of European paintings, sculptures and ceramics – it is in fact considered on of the top fine arts museums in France.

The Musee de l’Hospice Comtesse has more artworks, and is one of Lille’s oldest buildings, dating back to the 15th century. The city’s Flemish influences are evident in the architecture of this landmark.

Shoppers should visit the Marche de Wazemmes, a lively outdoor market with clothes, furniture and an indoors food market next door.
