  • Lille Driving Tour by Convertible Citroen 2CV

    2. Lille Driving Tour by Convertible Citroen 2CV

    Take a retro guided tour of the beautiful city of Lille on board an iconic Citroen 2CV, as idiosyncratically French as a beret or baguette. Tours can vary from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, with room for up to 3 passengers. Riding in the famous car, feel the vroom-vroom of its tiny engine (2CV literally means "2 tax horsepower")! Lean over at every bend in the road and enjoy the vintage upholstery. If the weather’s right, you’ll tackle the cobbled streets with the roof rolled back and the wind in your hair. Your driver-guide will tell anecdotes about the city at every nook and cranny en route, and they'll advise you on the best places to go when you’ve regained your street legs! Lille is an ideal city to tour in a 2CV; the streets are narrow, and though the cobbles might shake and rattle your bones a bit, you'll feel every part a native.

Next, ride along the Rue de Gand, taking time to appreciate its collection of typical "estaminets" (combination cafe-pub-restaurants). Leap back into the 21st century with a stop in Euralille, the modern commercial center that shows how the capital ...

What people are saying about Vieux-Lille

Absolutely fantastic, from booking and arranging the time and pick up from our hotel to the tour itself! The two drivers who took our party of 6 (and our luggage after finding out our hotel was closing for the afternoon hours before we were due to leave for the tour) on an hours tour of the city, pointing out historical buildings of interest that lead to interesting conversation topics throughout the journey.
