In May my wife and I are driving a rental car from Mont Saint Michel to Lille (turning the car in before we cross the Belgium border). From Lille we are headed to Bruges for a two-night stay with side trips to Ghent and possibly Antwerp - then on to Amsterdam.
We just heard good things about visiting Tournai just across the French/Belgian border from Lille. I'm interested in hearing any thoughts and experiences regarding a Tournai stopover (there's little or no information in any guide book that I have seen). Is it a worthwhile stop before we head to Bruges? How much time should we allocate? Should we stay overnight there? (We have time in our schedule before we are due at our Bruges hotel). Thanks for your any help and information you can give.
