Get your bearings as you walk with your local guide into the heart of Ghent. With a map of the area at hand, your time is now your own to explore this historic place.

Take a stroll over romantic St Michael’s Bridge, which overlooks the old river port, and admire the famous ‘three towers’ of St Nicholas Church, the Belfry and St Bavo’s Cathedral. Soak up the atmosphere as you wander through the streets and duck into a cosy pub to try a Belgian craft beer. Feeling peckish? Choose one of the many local restaurants and tuck into moules-frites or sweet waffles.
