Lille : Michelin's recommendations
Northern France is not just gloomy plains and sad towns and Lille is the proof of this. By turns, Flemish, Spanish and then Austrian, this is a town rich in history that only fell into Louis XIV's pocket in 1667. It will give you a rare synthesis of architectural beauty, liveliness, culture and economic prosperity. Lille is served by the TGV and Eurostar which are destined for Brussels and London so it is a true regional and European metropolis. A must to be (re) discovered!
