And much more!

Your guide will share numerous anecdotes with you about the history of Ghent and Flanders. Highlights include the Belfry, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Ghent Altarpiece or Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, which is housed in The Saint Bavo's Cathedral.

You will then go on a cruise on the canals in Ghent.

Once you have returned to dry land, you'll have a free time for lunch.

After lunch, you will leave the city centre and travel by boat to the MSK Museum of Fine Arts and the SMAK Museum of Contemporary Art. These two sites house numerous works by Flemish painters like Hieronymus Bosch, Rubens, Ensor or Magritte.
