Explore the Flemish architecture and industrial heritage of Lille on a guided walking tour of the city's historic heart. With an expert guide leading the way, check out landmarks dating back to the 13th century and hear about life in this northern town.

Meet up with your guide in the centre of Lille's old town, at the Palais Rihour. This 15th-century Gothic edifice boasts sparkling stained glass windows and regularly hosts temporary art exhibitions. From there, cross Lille's main plaza to see the beautiful Vieille Bourse, where bankers traded until the 1650s, and the neo-classical opera house with its ornate sculptures and bas-reliefs.

See the soaring clock tower of the old Chamber of Commerce, whose belfry regularly chimes out popular northern French folk songs, and stand before the impressive turn-of-the-century facade of the Notre Dame de la Treille Cathedral. Wrap up your excursion at the Hospice Comtesse, a pretty museum filled with ceramics, tiles, religious art, paintings, and furniture from Lille's past.
