You will see all the important sites including the Royal Palace, St. Michael's Cathedral and the Palace of Justice. Taste the best Belgian fries and get ready to participate in a discovery of Belgian chocolate in a typical chocolate shop where you can also taste some delicious pralines. Before leaving Brussels, catch a glimpse of Manneken Pis, the bronze statue of a little boy peeing in a fountain.



Head to the banks of the Scheldt in Antwerp, where you'll encounter the Fashion District, and the Market Square, including a visit to the heart of the Cathedral of Our Lady. Pass by the home and studio of Peter Paul Rubens, the famous Flemish painter, as well as one of the oldest zoos in the world. Discover Antwerp, the diamond district, where nearly 80% of the world's rough diamonds are traded.

Next stop is the medieval city of Bruges with tasting of a sample of 5 Belgian beers in a typical Brussels café*. Discover Bruges on a canal cruise (about 35 minutes). You can venture inside the Chapel of the Holy Blood, where it is said that the blood of Christ was brought after the Crusades.
