You can find the convention centre in Lille at the heart of the city's business district. Known as the Grand Palais, this convention centre hosts hundreds of events each year. The annual Grand Palais soiree comes with a different theme each year; for example, in 2008, it was British.
Unsurprisingly, most Lille hotels serve French food. Step away from your accommodation and you will find hundreds of patisseries. Seize the chance to eat authentic macaroons, croissants, and other French delicacies. You can find waffles and crepes throughout the city, which means breakfast on the go is a must-do as you see Lille's sights.
If you stay in a Lille hotel in the city centre, you automatically gain access to a range of shops that is hard to beat. Browse the pedestrian areas, which are past the Grand Place, to find high street chain stores. In Euralille you will find dozens more shops, including the Carrefour hypermarket. Vieux Lille is the place to go for upscale boutiques and designer stores.
Walk past The Opera and The Chamber of Commerce at night to see them beautifully lit up. Go experience the European arts from the 15th to 20th centuries at the Musée des Beaux-Arts. For a unique art experience, visit the Musée de l'Hospice Comtesse, which was once a hospital.
Football dominates Lille sports, as the city is home to one of the world's best teams, the Lille Football Club. During the summer, you can head to one of the city's lawn tennis clubs to enjoy a game in the warm outdoors.
