Lille is well renowned for its friendliness and strong cultural and architectural links. Located in northern France, Lille has a large university population and is a city based on Flemish influences due to its close proximity to the Belgian border.
The city bases itself on its 17th century architecture which can be seen across the city, especially in the city centre and Grand Place which homes the iconic war memorial in a square surrounded by its historic buildings.
The city also boasts fantastic transport networks, particularly its railways which make the city somewhat of an international hub. The city is set to host six games throughout Euro 2016 which will include four group matches, followed by a Round of 16 fixture and one of the Quarter Finals.
