Upon arrival in Bruges you will have different options that you will have discussed with your driver/guide during the travel time.

Located to the North of the Flanders region of Belgium, the Unesco World Heritage Site of Bruges is on your program today. Dating back to the 12th century, the city has always been at the cross roads of commercial trade. Because of its wealth, the historic medieval center is one of the most beautiful in Europe. Civil monuments, Churches houses and cobbled streets were built along the numerous canals that cross the town and that gave its nickname as ‘the Venice of the North’. The city is also famous for being the birthplace of Flemish Art especially painting as well as for the traditional production of sheets and lace. Upon arrival, enjoy a guided walking tour in the old part of the city. Then reach the Canals and take part in a cruise as part of this tour. Other highlights of the city that come highly recommended include climbing up the 83 meter Bell Tower located in the historical part of town or visiting the different neighborhoods such as Rozenhoedkaai or the Hansa Quarter. During the day you will enjoy some free time for personal discovery so why not shop for specialties like Belgian Chocolates or local French fries?

Please note that this will be a long day as the driving distance from Paris to/from Bruges is of 3 hours 30 minutes. Also, be sure to have the necessary documents with you in case of control during the driving time as you will change countries. A personal ID is strongly recommended.
