Private 8-hour excursion to Ghent and Antwerp from Brussels with Hotel Pick Up

Bruges and Ghent are two charming, small towns in Belgium, each just a short train ride away from Brussels. In a perfect world, Bruges and Ghent each deserve their own day for exploring. However, if you are short on time, you can visit Bruges and Ghent in one day.<br><br>Namur is the capital city of the Wallonia region of Belgium. At the confluence of the Meuse and Sambre rivers is the Citadel, a medieval fortress with 7km of underground passages, gardens, views and a golden statue of a giant turtle. In town, the Felicien Rops Museum focuses on the works of this 19th-century, Namur-born erotic artist. The baroque St. Loup Church has marble columns and a richly carved ceiling.

Nice square in the old part of Namur. It's dominated by the building of Palais des Congres. The name comes from the past - square of arms was the gathering place of a small troop and a central space hosting important ceremonies of military life.

We spent a while here as there are lots of things to look at, a bit more time looking at the Statues & Sculptures , a very interesting story about them.

There are often events in the Place - on our visit was a farming themed show which was interesting. Later, a large covered dance floor was being erected. A busy place. Would recommend just sitting, having a coffee, and watching the world go by.

Nice square - good sun trap with a couple of bronze statues which appeal to children for photos and small cafes and restaurants all around it with outdoor seating . Has a central raised wooden floor where a large marquee was hosting an event to promote the area when we were there
