Direct train from Ghent to Lille in France/ itinerary ideas?

Jump to last reply

I'll be visiting Belgium in August - on the itinerary is Brussels and Ghent. While in Ghent, I thought it might be nice to visit Lille for a day-trip, it seems quite close. Are there any direct trains between Ghent and Lille - I seem to only see one via Brussels; which might mean I should rather change my itinerary round?

Also, any other interesting places near Brussels (as a base) you would recommend except Bruges? (Love Bruges, but been there many times).

We'll only be there four nights, so I figured on day in Brussels, two in Ghent and then one in Lille? Does that sound good?

Thanks happy travellers!
Cristelle
