Itinerary

4-Day Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Local departure by coach, then to Belgium for a three-night stay.

  • Day 2 - Floralies Ghent

    See the city of Ghent burst into bloom and a sea of colour.

    Taking place every four years, Floralies opens its doors in early May 2020 at Ghent's Citadelpark, drawing inspiration from the great artist Van Eyck. The theme for 2020 is 'My Paradise, a Global Garden'. This flower and plant exhibition showcases some of the finest horticultural treasures. The first exhibition took place in a pub in 1809 where around 50 plants competed for the honour.

    Over the years the event has built up a strong reputation for itself as the must-attend exhibition of the horticultural industry in Belgium.

    More than 500,000 types of plants and flowers can all be found under one roof, with the indoor gardens spanning over 1.5 hectares. It's no wonder that Ghent is regarded as the 'Flower Capital of Belgium'
