Train Lille → St Pierre des corps
Duration 2h38 - From $41
A little taste of flanders in France Why would a city in France also have a Flemish name ? Lille (or Rijsel as it's known in Flemish) rests on the Deule river near the border where France meets Belgium. It is the largest of France's cities in the north. Lille is proud of its Flemish history and influence, which was once considered the quintessential example of fine taste and affluence. To live up to its heritage, Lille boasts notable architecture and style, providing visitors with an abundance of restaurants, hotels, museums and charming ambiance in its restored Vieux Lille. In 2004, Lille proudly bore the title of the European Capital of Culture, and provided residents and visitors alike with outstanding music and art events. The center of all activity is known as the Grande Place at the southern edge of Vieux Lille. Here, the streets are jammed with shoppers and outdoor cafes (when the weather is agreeable – Lille rarely gets too hot in the summer, and often gets below freezing in the winter).

Reviews & ratings
"They announced just before the departure that the train would be delayed by up to 45 minutes due to an accident/ person on the track outside of Lille. I would have prefered that they announced a new departure time so that people could get back off the train and then get back on when they thought it might depart. Apart from the delay everything else was fine. "
