We’re going to Belgium for 10 days at the end of June and are looking for some guidance on itinerary. Our home base will be Brussels, and we splurged a bit on a hotel very close to the Grand Place. So far our only set activity is the Omegang (medieval festival and pageant) which we have tickets for. Aside from exploring Brussels, we were going to take day trips to Bruges, Ghent and maybe Antwerp. Another possibility could be a taking the train to Paris, Amsterdam or other similar location and spending one overnight there.
We’re a couple in our 50’s on our honeymoon, and this is the first trip to Europe for both of us. Looking for a relaxed pace and mix of both touristy and off the beaten path spots, and are open to all suggestions!
Thanks in advance for the help!
