Brussels — 5 nights

Capital of Europe

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Grand Place and Musical Instruments Museum (MIM). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Antwerp (MAS - Museum aan de Stroom, Museum De Reede, &more). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Atomium, admire the masterpieces at Magritte Museum, examine the collection at Horta Museum (Musee Horta), and browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert.

A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
