Ghent is a dynamic modern city with a center from the Middle Ages.
A one-hour drive brings you to the medieval Old Town of Ghent. Begin your walking tour at St Michael's Bridge, with its view of Ghent's three glorious medieval steeples. The closest is that of the early-Gothic St Nicolas church. Behind it is the Belfry dating from 1314, and the honey-colored tower of St Bavo's Cathedral rises in the background.
Your guide will lead you to the pontoon, where you will board a canal boat for a fun and thorough exploration of the city. As you cruise through the historic city, see highlights such as the impressive Castle of the Counts, the Fish Market, 13th-century monasteries, and the ancient port of Ghent. The latter is graced with some charming old mercantile houses.
Back on dry land, you'll have about 1½ hours of free time to purchase lunch (at your own expense) or to continue exploring Ghent on your own.
Notes: Participants must negotiate up to 10 steps to board the canal boat. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring sunscreen. Tour does not operate on holidays.
