Tips for a safe and pleasant stay in LILLE

Lille, a dynamic and lively city, has a lot to offer those coming for the Rugby World Cup. However, as with any trip, it’s important to bear in mind certain recommendations to ensure a safe and enjoyable stay.


As in any big city, it’s advisable to remain vigilant, especially at night and in busy areas. Avoid displaying valuables in public, and always carry a copy of your identity papers.

Weather forecast

Lille has a temperate climate, but it can be quite cold and wet in autumn and winter. Bring appropriate clothing, including an umbrella and warm clothes.


Lille has an excellent public transport network with streetcars, buses and self-service bicycles. Cabs and car-sharing services are also available. Don’t forget that parking in the city can be difficult and expensive.


The currency in France is the euro. Credit cards are widely accepted, but it’s always useful to have a little cash on hand for small shops or markets.


Don’t miss out on a taste of the local gastronomy. Lille is famous for its waffles, beer and regional dishes such as welsh or waterzoï.

Compliance with sanitary regulations

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, sanitary rules may be in force, such as the wearing of masks in certain public places and health passes to access certain places or events. Be sure to inform yourself before you leave, and respect these rules during your stay.

Enjoy rugby

Finally, don’t forget why you’re there – to enjoy the rugby! Make sure you know where and how to get to the stadium, and plan to arrive early to avoid last-minute stress.


Make the most of your stay in Lille and enjoy an unforgettable rugby experience!
