Brussels — 6 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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Grand Place and Atomium. Explore Brussels' surroundings by going to Bruges (Church of Our Lady Bruges, Groeningemuseum, &more). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), explore the galleries of Belgian Comic Strip Center, examine the collection at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), and admire the masterpieces at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

Antwerp — 3 nights

Its reputation as a business-centric city distracts many visitors from the real draws of Antwerp: its historical sites, architectural beauty, and lively culture.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Graslei and Korenlei and MAS - Museum aan de Stroom. Venture out of the city with trips to Ghent (Museum Dr. Guislain, Ghent City Center, &more). There's lots more to do: view the masterpieces at Museum De Reede, visit Zuid (the South), see the interesting displays at Rockoxhuis, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Our Lady.
