Bruges is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and it’s easy to see why with its grandiose buildings, scenic canals, and cobbled streets. In the late middle ages Bruges was once one of the wealthiest cities in the world as a result of trading. It is a fascinating place to wonder around with it’s various squares, canals at what seems like every street corner, boats motoring under the stone bridges, and people sitting outside cafes eating Moule Frites!
On our second day we travel to Ghent. Also dating from medieval times it has larger canals and squares than Bruges with many fine stone buildings lining the canal side - walk through the city taking in the atmosphere, visit the Botanical Gardens or Modern Art Museum, or explore the shopping area.
