1. The Netherlands: Private Day Trip to Antwerp and Bruges
Get picked up at your hotel by a professional guide who will drive you around so that you can discover Antwerp - the European capital of culture and the global center for diamonds - before you continue to visit Bruges - where the historic center was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Antwerp, you will visit the second biggest harbor in Europe and the home town of the Flemish Baroque painter, Peter Paul Rubens. You will explore the Market Square with the Town Hall, Saint-Paul's Church, and the beautiful Golden Age Guild Houses. There is not only history to discover in Antwerp, as it is also know for its modern architecture. See the new Palace of Justice, the Museum aan de Stroom, and the new Port House. Afterwards, go to Bruges and explore the charming area around the Dyver canal, stroll the cobbled square of Walplein, and wander through the narrow lanes of the Stoofstraat. You will also discover the Gruuthuse Palace, Burg Square, and the Basilica of the Holy Blood before you return to your hotel.
