This is our first time in Belgium. We will be staying in Amsterdam for a week and have four days to explore Belgium. (Tuesday morning - Friday night). We will be staying Friday night back in Amsterdam to catch an early morning Saturday flight. We are interested in seeing Bruges, Antwerp, and Brussels. But since we only have 3 nights we would like to keep hotel hopping down, traveling to a minimum, and costs of train tickets low. So we need help deciding which ones. We think we want to do at least one night in Bruges, and then a choice between Antwerp or Brussels. Can anyone help us on our itinerary and how it would work best with the trains?
We like good food, little bit of relaxation, some museums and history, and just want to get the most out of Belgium during our short stay. We understand Bruges may be a little touristy, but we like to see more of the local atmosphere as well. Thanks in advance!
