A superb day-trip idea for anyone staying in Brussels, this Belgium gift experience shows you around not one but two UNESCO-listed cities with a professional guide leading the way. You’ll start the day in beautiful Ghent, where points of interest include the ornate decorations and famed late-medieval treasures within St. Bavo’s Cathedral; the Castle of the Counts of Flanders, and Ghent’s many historic buildings and port. An easygoing walking tour will illuminate the city’s fascinating past and culture before you move on to Bruges, around an hour to the west.
Sometimes known as the ‘Venice of the North’, Bruges is also a UNESCO city for its historic old centre.
