Highlights / General details
Full day trip from Paris to Bruges, also known as the "Venice of the North" and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. The town's historic center has kept all its medieval charm. Surrounded by canals, it is home to historical and architectural masterpieces.
Your visit to the beautiful town of Bruges will begin with a guided walking tour of the Gothic-style brickwork architecture of the historic center, lasting around 1 hour and 30 minutes. As your tour winds through the town, you will come across the magnificent Grand Place Square, the Market Hall and its lofty bell tower, Notre Dame Cathedral (built in the 13th Century), the Benedictine convent known as Le Béguinage, and the imposing Town Hall.
In Summer (April 1 to October 31), step aboard for a cruise along Bruges's canals to wonder at its beautiful Flemish townhouses and soak up its mystical and peaceful atmosphere.
Followed by an opportunity to make the most of Bruges at your own pace with lunch in a local restaurant. Sample regional specialties (mussels and fries, traditional Flemish sweet and sour beef stew, waffles, etc.), visit the town's museums, discover Flemish art and local craftsmanship, or treat yourself to some delicious Belgian chocolates.
