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 some cultural insight at Grand Place and Belfry of Bruges. Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Gravensteen (in Ghent) and Bruges (The Markt, Groeningemuseum, &more). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Atomium, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), explore the world behind art at René Magritte Museum, and don't miss a visit to Belgian Comic Strip Center.

Next up on the itinerary: take in the exciting artwork at Museum De Reede, see the interesting displays at Rubens House (Rubenshuis), admire the striking features of Antwerpen-Centraal, and pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Paul's Church.
