Antwerp — 5 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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chocolate Nation and Red Star Line Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum De Reede and Museum Plantin-Moretus. Change things up with these side-trips from Antwerp: Fort Eben-Emael (in Eben-Emael) and Ghent (Graslei and Korenlei, Museum Dr. Guislain, &more). The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Vlaeykensgang, see the interesting displays at Museum Mayer van den Bergh, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Paul's Church, and look for gifts at Grand Diamonds Jewelry.
