Nice city, bit messy but gret walk if you like city stroll. Visit the Marché de noël de Lille they got nice stuff
LILLE Lille is a city with many cosy shopping streets, a number of large pedestrian shopping streets and a large indoor shopping centre. In the older part of the city, such as the Reu the Comtesse are what more exclusive boutiques. Lille is a city with beautiful historic buildings and monuments and a visit to the impressive art collection from the Palais des Beaux Arts is well worth a visit. And also the kitchen, a combination of Flemish and French is .... Top!
Nice atmosphere. There was a section for all Christmas stores. But the whole place has different shops and LaFayette mall.
Lille is one of the crossroads of northern France. It has a great history and good transportation links, but it also serves as a haven for transients, homeless, and other agenda-less people. It's easy to get to London, Brussels, or Paris from here.
