The Basics

The atmospheric Old Town (Vieux-Lille) is rich in 16th- and 17th-century architecture. Walk its cobblestoned streets and see Flemish-influenced, red-brick buildings as you wander. There's no shortage of things to do in the neighborhood that's home to top attractions such as Notre-Dame-de-la-Treille Cathedral, Hospice Comtesse Museum, the Birthplace of Charles de Gaulle, Grand Place, and Vieille Bourse (Old Stock Exchange). For ease, discover history-saturated Vieux-Lille on a walking, biking, or driving tour.

Great tour
Great introduction to the city. Our driver showed us the main sites, which we visited on foot later. The car is small enough to go through the narrower streets. Interesting facts about the city. So much better than reading a guidebook.

Me and my husband took the tour. Or tour guide was a very kind history student who knew a lot about the city and explained us the history behind different monuments and parts of the city. Touring the city with 2CV was also very exciting and unique.

Unique Tour of Lille by Convertible 2CV - 1h00
Great overview of Lille. Our guides, Charles & Marie were very knowledgeable. Both were also very courteous & genuinely loved to share Lille’s stories. Our tour was a bit delayed because the second car arrived late & was out of gas. But Charles patiently entertained our group with a little bit history while waiting. Thank you, Charles!
