A taste of historic Bruges

This morning we discover Bruges and its rich history during a guided walking tour. Much of Bruges' beautiful medieval architecture has been preserved, and the city's historic centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. We then experience one of the country's most popular exports, with a visit to a chocolate maker. The rest of the day is free for you to explore Bruges as it is decorated for the festive season. You may wish to explore the Christmas Market, held in the city's main square. The small array of stalls is filled with chocolate, lace and local delicacies.

Day 3

Brussels Christmas Market

Today we travel by train to the Belgian capital of Brussels. Dating back to the 11th century, this is a city with plenty to offer; from its Art Nouveau architecture, to its range of plentiful museums and array of restaurants, bars and cafés. Your time here is free for you to explore; and one of the highlights is Brussels' main Christmas Market which is located around the Grand Place, one of Europe's most beautiful city squares. As you absorb the magnificent atmosphere around the 230 artisan stalls here, why not be tempted by some of the traditional Belgian chocolate on offer? A real highlight of the market takes place in the evening, when an hourly Sound & Light show illuminates the Grand Place and its spectacular architecture in all its glory.
