Day 2Canal Cruise & Ghent’s delights!
Today we take to the canals and streets to discover Ghent. Begin with a 40 minute canal cruise followed by tea and coffee. Then, take a 2 hour walking tour around the old squares and along the streets and whilst enjoying the architecture, enjoy 3 stops in the centre for tastings of regional products. Enjoy all the sights the city has to offer such as a large and regal dragon perched atop the Belfry, which soars over the city. The magnificent St. Bavo’s Cathedral, the Castle of the Count and the famous Graslei area with its many canal side cafés and restaurants. Alternatively, visit the old meat hall, now housing shops and cafés and experience the wonderful aromas, or simply wander around the famous Graslei and Korenlei, a favourite with both locals and tourists.
