Visit three cities in three days in this fantastic itinerary, giving you the highlights of Belgium.  Start in the charming city of Bruges where you can explore beautifully preserved ancient buildings and meandering canals.  Then head to Ghent, one of Belgium’s oldest cities.  It is simultaneously cosy and vibrant, with a wealth of medieval and classical architecture.

Finally, visit the capital city Brussels, a lively city that is brimming with history, culture and politics.  This itinerary will give you a glimpse of this fascinating city and its political goings-on but do take a look at our other Brussels itineraries for other visits you could include.

You might also consider combining this itinerary with a trip to Ypres and the battlefields.
