Lille, the metropolis

Lille is at the same time, one thousand years of history at the crossroads of Europe, and a metropolis with the future in sight and always generous hospitality.

City of Commerce and Industry, Lille Metropolis has disrupted the customary and become an internationally recognized cultural metropolis. Culture everywhere, for everyone, all the time, as highlighted during Lille 2004, European Capital of Culture. Great vitality in the image of its Grand Place and Old Lille, beating heart of the city with flamboyant architecture that has kept this soul popular and friendly, still determines the city’s identity here. Want to admire Rubens, Dirk Bouts and Goya of the fabulous Fine Arts Center (Palais des Beaux-arts)? Or discover the treasures of modern and outsider art in Villeneuve d’Ascq?  There's something for every mood and all tastes. Big city lovers can find this special cocktail in Lille that is the attractiveness of important urban centers - shopping, culture, architecture and good food - and, in addition, with the quality of life of a city who has thought out its development in a sustainable manner. The city center is lived on foot, whereas the automatic subway and V'Lille, accessible to all, allow to explore the four corners of the city, the trendy or lesser known neighborhoods and the parks welcoming a family outing or ... lovers. 

Lille is waiting for you!
