This morning we’ll arrive in Antwerp, Belgium’s second-largest city, home to the country’s biggest port. Positioned on the River Sheltz, with a large harbour linking to the sea, it has been pivotal in the country’s history.
Home to the famous Baroque artist Pieter Paul Rubens, it attracts art lovers and diamond dealers from all over the world. Having been decimated during WWII, today the city is modern and organised, yet still retains an intriguing medieval heart.
Enjoy a guided walking tour of the city centre, passing by its café-filled cobbled lanes, admiring the Renaissance Town Hall and the unique Gothic Cathedral of Our Lady, the symbol of Antwerp. Then, pass through the Vlaeykensgang, a charming 16th century secret alley dating back to 1591.
