Bruges is the largest city in West Flanders and has a bustling port. It is known as the Venice of the North, thanks to an array of beautiful canals that run through this historic city. Stroll through its busy Market Square complete with centuries-old guild halls. You’ll pass a very popular landmark, the Belfry — a medieval bell tower that formerly housed a treasury. Travel on to view the Town Hall, then the Gothic Basilica of the Holy Blood — a 12th-century Romanesque church that sits in Burg Square. You will stop to take photos at the Church of Our Lady, a 13th-century chapel that is home to an array of art treasures, including Michelangelo's iconic sculpture, the Madonna and Child (exterior viewing only). After enjoying a scenic canal boat cruise, you'll have time to explore Bruges on your own. Your tour ends with some free time to browse the shops that surround the cobbled Walplein Square before choosing your own location for lunch.
Canal boats are open air; remember to dress warmly.
There’s a high probability of rain, so we highly recommend bringing an umbrella.
Guests must wear their seatbelt on the coach at all times.
