LILLE > Location

Lille is the largest city in the North of France. With its French and Belgian neighbours, Lille is part of a cross-border metropolis of 1.9 million inhabitants in the centre of a Euro-Region. 

This privileged geographic position, enhanced by a high-quality transport network, makes Lille a veritable gateway to Europe : 1h from Paris, 30 min from Brussels and 2h from London.

Lille has a high quality of lifestyle, economic dynamism, cultural vitality and festive energy. 

Classified as a city of "Art et Histoire" since 2004, Lille has conserved a large number of buildings and monuments, both secular and religious, which remain as signs of its illustrious past. From buildings of the Vieux-Lille neighborhood (old city) to  Euralille, the new business and commercial centre, Lille is a multifarious and great city.
