Equipped with an audiovisual system in 9 languages (French, English, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Russian), this city tour by bus offers views of the city’s main sites and monuments, from its origins to the most modern districts. Admire the Goddess statue as you drive past the Place du Général de Gaulle (Grand Place) and see the Opera House, the Chamber of Commerce and the Beauregard Row at the Place du Théâtre. Of course, you will also drive past the Townhall with its Belfry, the Citadel and the Old Paris Gate.

Visit the entire Domaine de Chantilly at your leisure, 7,800 hectares located in one of the largest forests in Paris.  Explore the Château, which houses the Condé Museum. This is made up of the princely suites, an exceptional collection of paintings (over 800 masterpieces by artists such as Botticelli, Raphael, Poussin, and Delacroix), and a library and archives conserving over 13,000 works.  Visit the gardens for a magnificent panorama of the art of the Western garden, with the French-style garden designed by Le Nôtre in the 17th century, the 18th-century Anglo-Chinese garden housing the Hamlet that served as a model for Marie-Antoinette's Hamlet in the Petit Trianon in Versailles, and the 19th century English garden. Discover the Great Stables, which are a masterpiece of 18th-century architecture. They house the Museum of the Horse, which is home to over 200 objects and works of art dedicated to the equine world. All year long, the Great Stables propose magical equestrian shows.

Vieux Lille 2-Hour Guided Walking Tour

3. Vieux Lille 2-Hour Guided Walking Tour

Visit Lille's most charming district and admire its architecture, shops, and museums on a 2-hour guided walk. Learn about the old town's heritage and history from your guide as you pass Vieux Lille's landmarks and monuments. Some of the attractions you’ll see include the Palais Rihour, the main square, the Old Stock Exchange, the Opera House, the Chamber of Commerce, and Notre-Dame de la Treille Cathedral. The tour will conclude near the Hospice Comtesse. Founded in 1237 by Jeanne de Flandre, the Hospice features a display of works from Lille's past including objects from everyday life, wooden sculptures, earthenware, furniture, and paintings.

Lille: Town Hall Belfry Entry Ticket

4. Lille: Town Hall Belfry Entry Ticket

Make your way to the Town Hall Belfry in the historic heart of Lille, and then climb to the top of the UNESCO World Heritage Site for spectacular views of the city and its surroundings.  Dominating the skyline with its typically Flemish gables, the Art Deco building is an icon of Lille and offers views from the city's highest point. Climb the first 100 steps, from where you can take the lift to the top, or carry on walking if you are feeling brave! Experience Lille from a different perspective as you look across at monuments such as the Grand Place with its Column of the Goddess. On a clear day you can see as far as the mountains of Flanders and the valley of the River Lys. Take in the city as it sprawls beneath your feet and get a unique look at the new multi-use stadium of the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

Lille: 2-Hour Segway Tour

Choose to start your 2-hour Segway tour of Lille by getting picked up from your accommodation or meeting your guide at the starting point. Wander along the walls of the well-preserved Citadelle and get acquainted with 17th-century military architecture. Then, head to the heart of the Old Town and soak in the elegant atmosphere of "le Vieux-Lille" in front of the neo-Gothic Notre-Dame de la Treille. From there, wander on to reach the oldest monument in Lille: the Hospice Comtesse. Originally used as a hospital, the Hospice Comtesse today hosts a historical museum that immerses you in the lifestyle and historical events of previous centuries. Next, ride along the Rue de Gand, taking time to appreciate its collection of typical "estaminets" (combination cafe-pub-restaurants).

Finally, arrive at La Place du Théâtre and La Grand Place to check out the Opera and the famous Vieille Bourse, the old stock exchange that stands today as one of the city's most important monuments.
