Take off for Lille, in conquest of the North
Nice-Lille, it’s the perfect gap! All of France separates these two large cities. The advantage of this distance is the differences it creates. The Grand Place looks nothing like the Place Masséna. Beer reigns over rosé. And for those who live on the shores of the Mediterranean, a world of unique flavours awaits. It’s still France, but it’s a whole new side of it. That’s why even though there’s little more than an hour’s flight time, a flight from Nice to Lille is a big and beautiful holiday!

Arriving in Lille
The Lille-Lesquins Airport is ideally situated at just 15 kilometres from Lille city centre. You have several options for getting to the centre:
- take the bus. There are two ways to do this. The first is the Lille Airport Shuttle. It runs every day from 5:30 am to 10:30 pm during spring and summer, and 8 pm the rest of the year. It will drop you at the Euralille shopping centre and the Lille Flanders tram/underground station in around 20 minutes. The second is Ilevia line 68. There’s a bus every 20 minutes during peak times, and every hour the rest of the day. It won't take you to the centre, but it will drop you right at the underground entrance.
- take a taxi. Many companies, one price: from €25 for a ride to the city centre.
- hire a car. You’ll find 5 agencies at the exit of the airport Arrivals Hall.
What to do in
Lille is a city that’s full of history, and not just that of General de Gaulle. At just over a thousand years old, it was Flemish, Burgundian, and Spanish before becoming French under Louis XIV. A conquest that brought change: Lille transformed itself into royalty, in the image of the royal district that sits in the shadow of the Vauban Citadel, which will captivate you will its churches and private mansions. But it’s also a city of the people, in the image of its centuries-old pubs where you can raise your pints over a “welsh” or some “moules-frites” - deliciously local specialities. True leaders in the quest for the simple life!

What is the best time of year to visit Lille?
Obviously beer in the North tastes best under the summer sun. And obviously the light of spring brings out all the charms of the Grand Place, the private mansions of Rue Royale, and the ramparts of the Citadel. And of course one should take part at least once in the famous Grand Braderie, the enormous flea market (100 kilometres of stalls) that takes place each year over the first weekend of September. But Lille is lively and a pleasure to visit at any time of year, even when the sun hides itself away. Because with its sumptuous cuisine, variety of culture, hospitality, and festive nights, this Flemish city will make you quickly forget the chill of the northern winter.
