Things to Do & See
1. LA GRAND PLACE
We visited Lille for the Christmas Market. The atmosphere was really festive with an illuminated Ferris wheel and enormous Christmas tree. Great to walk round with a warm glass of mulled wine or hot apple cider.
2. LE VIEUX-LILLE
Lunch at A l’Huîtrière
3. LA VIEILLE BOURSE (OLD STOCK EXCHANGE)
The stock exchange is a striking building in the center of Lille. Inside courtyard was a small antiques fair used by traders selling second hand books, antiques, and records.
4. LE TRIPOSTAL
Always fun checking out the cool modern art in a new town. The museum is big and inviting. Plenty of space to walk round. The exhibits are so varied, that there’s something for everyone.
5. PORTE DE PARIS
It is a commemorative monument for the victories of Louis XVI. It served as the town gates as well as an Arc de Triomphe.
Dinner at La Menara
