The peaceful city of Bruges is located in the Flemish Region of Belgium. Mostly known for its meandering canals, medieval architecture, and a range of delicacies to both eat and drink, this small Belgian city is a delight to discover.
Bruges is home to some of the best-preserved medieval buildings in the world, allowing visitors to wander through the cobbled streets and truly feel whisked back in time. With its many small squares and quaint streets, it's easy to see why the city is seen as one of the world's most romantic cities.
Like most of Belgium, Bruges is a mecca for food and drink. With the worldwide fame of Belgian beer, it's no surprise that the city is home to the Beer Museum and several breweries with daily tours. Bruges' largest beer shop, "2be Beer Wall,'' offers an endless variety of beer, but there is no shortage of smaller bars to sample the local crafts. If the beer doesn't entice you, then perhaps world-famous Belgian chocolates will. Almost every street in Bruges has a chocolate shop, making it near impossible to resist the temptation to sample some. Hey, dark chocolate is healthy, right?
Belgium's excellent rail system makes it easy to travel to Bruges. Trains arrive from Brussels every 30 mins, easily connecting Bruges to Brussels' Airport. International bus services also provide access to the city from many other European destinations.
The fashion capital of the world, Milan, is a busy city brimming with activities and lavish nightlife. In spite of its frenetic modern lifestyle, Milan is also blessed with some amazing landmarks, of which the Milan Cathedral should be given special attention. Considered the largest and most unique Gothic structure in Italy, the cathedral took about 600 years to build, and its impressive gothic details will amaze all fans of architecture. The roof of the cathedral itself is accessible, so visitors can climb up to marvel at the city’s skyline and see the cathedral’s details up close. Another spot to consider is the Santa Maria delle Grazie, which currently houses “The Last Supper,” a masterpiece by the legendary artist Leonardo da Vinci. For those who enjoy old books, the Ambrosiana Library & Picture Gallery houses a vast collection of artworks, as well as rare ancient manuscripts.
For a taste of the unique Milanese cuisine, you could consider the Gente di Mare in Darsena, which offers superb seafood. If you wish to enjoy great local pizzas, Pizzium - Via Vigevano offers great dishes.
