You’ll find historical layers to unravel throughout this unique itinerary. Ghent, Belgium The handsome city of Ghent is reached via the peaceful Ghent-Terneuzen Canal – its link to the North Sea since the 19th century. In addition to some of Belgium’s most fascinating museums, dramatic Gothic monuments unearth the city’s glorious past – from St. Bavo’s Cathedral to the Castle of the Counts – thus Ghent is a truly interesting place to discover. And of course, no visit here would be complete without a chocolate treat or two! Cruising the Nieuwe Maas Savour pretty riverside houses, the iconic Erasmus Bridge and Rotterdam’s soaring skyline as you sail west through this 24km-long distributary of the mighty Rhine River. Rotterdam, Netherlands Futuristic architecture, excellent nightlife and a plethora of top-drawer museums are just three of the things that make Rotterdam one of the most exciting, contemporary cities in Europe right now. You’ll be surrounded by stunning views: the innovative Cube Houses From only £799 per person Cruising the Western Scheldt River Glide along the fascinating Western Scheldt River en route to Antwerp. It has been a vital transportation link since the 16th century when it was famously used by the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles V. Look out for the Verdronken Land van Saeftinghe Nature Reserve along the way; it’s an important breeding area for a variety of birds. Antwerp, Belgium Lively Antwerp is eminently bright and stylish, with connections to fashion, diamonds, exquisite chocolate and fine arts. The city’s architectural highlight is sure to be the medieval Cathedral of Our Lady, with its 123- metre high tower. Add to the mix picturesque parks and gardens, and quaint cobbled walkways and you’ll find the city a delight to explore. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Admire the highlights of Brussels, including the unusual Atomium monument, the King Baudouin Stadium and Grand Place, one of the most beautiful town squares in Europe.
