Typical excursions included in your programme
Day trip One
Visit Lille, France
Wander through colourful, multicultural stalls at the vibrant Marché de Wazemmes (Wazemmes Market) and discover the region’s artistic heritage with a visit to Palais des Beaux-Arts. Dubbed the ‘Louvre of Lille’, this renowned museum features works by Goya, Donatello, and Veronese.
Day trip Two
Visit Brussels, Belgium
Spend a day exploring one of Europe’s most culturally diverse, cosmopolitan, and greenest cities. Not only is Brussels Belgium’s first city, but it is also the de facto capital of the European Union.
Visit Bruges, Belgium
Stroll the streets of this Unesco World Heritage city famed for its Flemish architecture and system of canals that encircle this picture-postcard travel must-see. Bruges yields a cornucopia of sensory and artistic delights, including Belgian chocolate, waffle workshops, breweries, and craft outlets selling handmade Bruges lace.
Visit Ypres, Belgium
The beautiful city of Ypres in Flanders staged five of the most brutal battles fought during World War I, including the Battle of Passchendaele. Indelibly linked with the war, Ypres houses many museums, war cemeteries, battlefields, and historic sites.
