Lille is a First-Class Blend of French and Flemish Culture

Also in the central square is the impressive Goddess statue and numerous interesting shops and cafes. While in Lille, be sure to visit the Palais des Beaux Arts museum, the stunning Lille Cathedral and the spectacular 17th-century Citadel. Lille is only an hour from London, so you can take advantage of business class deals to London and ferry over to France.

Both Marseille and Nice are served by international airports, so buy your discounted business class tickets to either city for the ultimate Côte d’Azur holiday.
