Brussels — 3 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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Grand Place and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule). Appreciate the collections at Atomium and Belgian Comic Strip Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Antwerp (Te Boelaerpark, Sunset Beach, &more). There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, see the interesting displays at Horta Museum (Musee Horta), explore the world behind art at Magritte Museum, and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.

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.
