Brussels — 5 nights

Capital of Europe

Get out of town with these interesting Brussels side-trips: Bruges (Adornesdomein & Jeruzalemkerk, Belfry of Bruges, &more). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), examine the collection at Horta Museum (Musee Horta), browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, and explore the world behind art at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.
