Here are some things you shouldn't miss in Lille: - The City Center (it’s marvelous)
- La Citadelle
- Forum des Sciences
- EuraLille
- Palais de Beaux Arts (The second most important Museum in France after Louvre)
- Marche de Wazemmes
- La Fabrik (a new, huge and really cool club)
- Hospice Comtesse Museum (quite small, but very often the exhibitions change so there’s always something new to see here)
- Cathédrale Notre-Dame de la Treille (recently renovated, very impressive)
- The Old Town – a masterpiece of tradition
You should avoid a few peripheral districts.
