This really is a great place tovisit - huge main square, loads of places for a coffee or a meal, plenty of pedestrianised streets and magnificent old buildings. Love it!

Vieux-Lille is perfectly OK but there are far more interesting places to visit in France. Parts of the city are heavily polluted by dog crap. What disgusting owners some dogs have.

Lovely old centre to wander around. Lots of cobbled streets, little restaurants (of course, avoid the tourist traps in the centre), bars and shops and good to just enjoy it all. The centre is actually quite a big area, so plenty to see.

I enjoyed looking around the city centre and the old town area. There is amazing architecture everywhere you look. I loved musee du beau arts the most. Good food and beer and not too expensive. It feels a bit too commercial in places where the...More
