Brussels — 5 nights

Capital of Europe

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Explore Brussels' surroundings by going to Bruges (Belfry of Bruges, Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, &more). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Grand Place, buy something for everyone on your list at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, find something for the whole family at Mini-Europe, and explore the historical opulence of Royal Palace of Brussels.

A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
