Vieux Lille (Old Lille) is a district just north of the city center and east of the Citadel. This district doesn’t seem to have any exact boundaries, but Rue Basse is certainly part of it. The streets are rather narrow and there are lots of quaint old pubs and restaurants, so it is a popular tourist destination.
Second photo: One of the big problems of Old Lille is that most of the streets are open to cars, even though there is obviously no room for them.
Next: Rue Royale
A hugely popular part of Lille, with historic buildings and a good choice of bars and restaurants, Vieux Lille (old Lille) should be on every visitor's itinerary. The streets of Vieux Lille are winding and cobbled which lends it a certain charm but also makes it difficult to explore without a map. Notre Dame de la Treille and Musee de l’Hopsice Comtesse are two worthwhile stops when exploring Vieux Lille.
Vieux Lille or Old Lille is perhaps the most picturesque district of Lille. 17th century cobbled streets, antique shops, some nice restaurants and close by a big park: a great area to walk in. It is situated in and around Rue de la Monnaie. This is also the area where the Musée Hospice Comtesse is situated (see next tip)
