This is Belgium’s most perfectly preserved medieval town, and its’ jaw-dropping, beautiful architecture attracts more than two million visitors a year. With its wealth of interesting old buildings and canals, Bruges still retains a distinct medieval air. Take a walk through the narrow streets or a boat trip on the canal and fall under its spell, charmed by the atmosphere of what many consider the most delightful city of Flanders.

Day 3

This is definitely one of the most do, tick bucket list items for the avid cycling fan! LIVE Race Viewing on the Paterberg!  We’ll set up to watch the race on the famous Paterberg, along with the Thomson cycling group. Hoards of  fans , flags, cobbles and excitement! Feel the atmosphere grow as the race approaches, enjoy a Belgian beer with sausage & pommes-frites and get ready to witness the locals go crazy if a Belgian powers up the 20% climb near the front.  Unforgettable!
