Lille 🧀✨

What to do:

Do you need more information for your trip to Lille?

Airport: 

-Aéroport de Lille 

-There is no international airport in Lille - you will most likely land in Paris and take a train from there. 

How to get around the city: 

-Most of the tourist centre of Lille is walkable but there are also 2 metro and tram lines that take you around the city and to the outskirts. They are very easy to navigate and quick! 

Getting to/from the airport: 

-The only option you really have to get to the airport from Lille Centre is by shuttle bus which takes about 20 minutes. 

-The shuttle brings you to Lille Flandres (one of the main train stations in Lille) in front of the CIC building. It costs 8 euros for a one-way ticket or 10 euros for a round-trip ticket, which I believe you pay directly with the driver. 

-If you're flying into Paris: there are many trains that go directly from Charles de Gaulle airport straight to the centre of Lille within an hour. You can find tickets on Ouigo, Omio or Trainline!  

Want help planning your trip to Lille? 

I consider France to be my area of expertise. I've lived here for 2 years and have traveled around many times to many regions! I would love to help you with your trip planning - let's make the most out of your trip! 

How can we make your trip EVEN BETTER? 

Curated recs are great if:

you know where you want to go, but don’t have the time or energy to research where to eat, what to do, or where to stay!

Custom itinerary is great if: 

you know where you want to go but cannot commit the time to planning and researching the logistical details. You can choose whether you want an in-depth itinerary or a trip outline!

Consultation calls are great if:

you want to chat face-to-face with someone who has lived in Europe for 4 years and can give you advice, tips, or even feedback on your itinerary. We can talk about everything and anything you need help with!
