HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR STAY
Day 1 – After an early start we travel to the Hotel Alfa Inn, in Belgium.
Day 2 – After breakfast we travel to Bruges, a city that will capture your heart. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, its fairy‐tale medieval centre is a harmony of cobbled lanes and dreamy canals that link market squares lined with soaring towers and historic churches. Perhaps head to Burg, one of the most photographed squares in Europe! Here you will find the Palace of the Liberty of Bruges and the Old Court of Justice – a rare example of Renaissance architecture.
Day 3 – Ostend at Anchor is a festival with plenty of things to see, do and discover and today you can enjoy all the festivities in your own time. Bringing around 150 authentic ships together, Ostend at Anchor is a celebration of its tremendous maritime history.
Day 4 – After breakfast, enjoy some more time to explore Ostend, later this afternoon we will travel to the charming city of Ypres. Home to very rich and varied past, the memory of the Great Wars are kept alive in the museums and in the historic sites. During our visit we will witness the Last Post Ceremony – which takes place every night at 8:00pm under the Menin Gate. This solemn, dignified ceremony is a simple but moving tribute to the courage and self‐sacrifice of those who fell in defence of their town.
Day 5 – We retrace our footsteps home.
