I’m not a high end shopper, so it was nice to find this shopping street with regular priced items. Lots of good eats and specialty candy shops. Don’t t forget to look up! The buildings are beautiful!

This is a pedestrian shopping street as you find in all French cities. The shops are mainly (inter) national shops that are found all over the country. Mixed in between are cafe's, restaurants and waffle shops. The best thing is people watching.

If there is a place you must pass in Lille is this street. The ambiance is amazing, the light, the people going around. Super to have a taste of the life in Lille.
