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)
Everyone says to visit old Lille (vieux Lille) which is not too far from the train station and immediately north of Place General de Gaulle. FNAC is a large bookstore on the square. The tower near here is not open for visitors.
The Old Town or Vieille Ville is covered by small kiosks and stands selling all kinds of Christmas stuff, from Quebec to Alsace.
heres the charming Vieux Lille with its narrow tiny streets in one of its busiest days of the year - La braderie..
On the corner of Place Louis de Bettignies and Rue des Bonnes Rappes stands a very old bakery. It's a lovely little shop dating from 1793.
The old city center of Lille with the narrow streets and beatifull renovated houses,is very much alive.There are lots of shops,cafes,restaurants and museums.
