wonderful place to take the pulse of the city. Also excellent for an early (or a lazy) breakfast in the morning as you watch the world go past.

Grand Place is the heart of the city and apart from being architecturally superb is also where to go for a quiet drink with people watching, and several touristy eating establishments - and McDonalds if that's your choice! We ate at Segafrado Zanetti, very good food and service and reasonably priced.

One of the hotspots of lille. But not really something to die for. Some decent shots here and there is all that you can get.

The square has a seating problem, you can only sit on the edge of the fountain, where everybody is sitting, or at an overpriced cafe. There is no shade and there's a road going through the square, so if you're walking around you have to watch yourself. The most beautiful buildings of Lille aren't even located on this square, but...

You can't visit Lille without passing through the square. There are cafes, buskers and it is on the side of the old town. A good central spot to sit back and watch the world go by
