Soak up the atmosphere of one of Belgium’s prettiest cities on this tour – you’ll want to keep your camera handy. Ghent was once one of northern Europe’s richest and most powerful areas – thanks to its hugely successful wool industry in the Middle Ages – so it’s filled to the brim with impressive Medieval architecture. On your hour’s walking tour, you’ll spot gable-fronted houses as you amble through the cobblestoned streets, and spy quaint shops. As you stroll across St Michael’s Bridge, catch first-class views of the well-known ‘Three Towers’ – the lofty spires of St Bavo’s Cathedral, St Nicholas’ Church and the Belfry – which poke through the skyline. Later on, you can explore under your own steam for a couple of hours – the perfect opportunity to sample a Belgian chocolate or five.
