On your next trip through Lille make sure to consider our Lille car hire services as your main means of transportation. Lille isn’t a large city, nor is it a small one, it’s somewhere in between and it is characterized by having a very active cultural life, a very beautiful town center and a rather large student population.

The city is served by the Lille Airport also known as Lille Lesquin Airport, which while small is very close to the city as well as the Belgium border and operated with flights from both large and budget airlines. You can get into the city from here via taxis and a direct coach but your best bet will be to employ our Lille car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.

Once in the city you will notice that the place packs quite a few must see sights and attractions such as La Vieille Bourse. This building was built in 1653 and it used to be the commercial exchange, situated between two very picturesque squares it still plays an important part in the life of the city.

The main square of the city is the Place du General-de-Gaulle which is more commonly known as the Grand’place. The square is lined with wonderful historic houses such as the neo-Flemish building which houses the La Voix du Nord newspaper as well as the presence of a beautiful fountain which features the statue of a goddess.

Then there’s another square called the Place Rihour which is surrounded by restaurants and its main attraction being the Palais Rihour which was built in 1453, definitely worth a visit especially seeing how the Palais is now home to the tourist information center.

A couple of other buildings that you’ll want to visit are the Opera House and the Chamber of Commerce, the first built in 1923 and the second in 1921, they are situates close to each other and offer a rather magnificent sight, especially when they’re lit at night.

These are of course only a few of the things that you can do in the city so make sure to employ our Lille car hire services in order to enjoy all of these and more while on your trip.
