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.
Let the collections at Atomium and Horta Museum (Musee Horta) capture your imagination. Grand Place and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule) will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Antwerp (Peter Poussenier, Te Boelaerpark, &more). Next up on the itinerary: get a taste of the local shopping with Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, admire the masterpieces at Magritte Museum, browse the different shops at Anspach Shopping, and see the interesting displays at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

Specialty Museums · Historic Sites · Nightlife
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.
