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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Grand Place and Belfry of Bruges. Explore Brussels' surroundings by going to Gemeentehuis (in Wetteren), Ghent (Saint Bavo's Cathedral, Gravensteen, &more) and Bruges (Kantcentrum, Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum, &more). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Atomium, explore the world behind art at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, get a taste of the local shopping with Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.

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.
Get some cultural insight at Graslei and Korenlei and Cathedral of Our Lady. Change things up with these side-trips from Antwerp: Ghent (Patershol, STAM Ghent City Museum, &more). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at MAS - Museum aan de Stroom, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Keizerskapel (Sint Anna kapel), get to know the fascinating history of Grote Markt, and admire the striking features of Antwerpen-Centraal.
