Encounter with Lille (France)

Lille (Rijsel in Dutch) has been on my to do list for a while and I have just spent a weekend.
Located North in France, Lille is the fourth largest city in France and the nearest to the Netherlands (at least from Maastricht it is just 2 hours drive), which makes it a perfect destination for a short trip.
Lille is perfect for walking around the pedestrian streets where you can discover local shops, cafe's and restaurants. What caught my attention in particular where the splendid bakeries and pastries shops such as Meert and Aux Merveilleux.
In Lille there are some very nice restaurants to be found. I had diner in a place at rue de Gand, this street is home to a dozen small, moderately-priced French and Flemish restaurants. (read more)
Perfect for a Sunday morning is a visit to Wazemmes market,  when the flea market blends with the lively, colourful market of the Place de la Nouvelle Aventure. You can feel and taste the local culture here.
One of the must-see highlights is the Musée La Piscine in Roubaix, little bit outside Lille but easy to reach with public transport.
