Living in Lille

France’s fourth-largest metropolis, an international crossroad and a dynamic economic center, Lille is also renowned for being a “City of Art and History.” In 2004, it was designated to be the European Capital of Culture

Lille’s proximity to Paris, Brussels, London, Amsterdam and Cologne places it at the crossroads of northwestern Europe. Lille is a prime tourist destination, the city is recognized for its friendly environment, preserved historic heritage, and thriving cultural life as illustrated by its prestigious museums (Lille Fine Arts Museum, the Louvre-Lens Museum just 30km from the city) and large selection of shows, concerts and more.

Lille is a young and vibrant city. Its research laboratories and numerous schools and universities draw nearly 160,000 students to the city every year. Lille also has a vast public transportation network: an international airport just 10 km away providing services to more than 60 national and international destinations, TGV train service, subway and bus systems, and bike lanes throughout the city!
