“Gorgeous Ghent.”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Our trio to Europe included stops in Bruges and Ghent. Of these we were most excited about Bruges having heard so much hype about the City. It is beautiful, however, Ghent was spectacular. Less touristy and with architecture that is incredibly beautiful and breathtaking.

Cobbled streets, great shops and restaurants make for a delightful visit.

“Charming”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I was completely enchanted with Ghent. I loved it and can't wait to return. It was gorgeous, happy, and more quirky than trendy. It is a city that seems to be proud of itself in a warm and welcoming way -- rather than an arrogant one. It has breathtakingly beautiful canals lined with medieval architecture and incredibly unique local museums (Dr. Guisain's Museum of the History of Psychiatry and the House of Alijn, Museum of the History of Folklore being my two favorites) .

Take a canal trip. See the classic sites. Then, see the quirky sites. Eat lots and lots of chocolate. What's not to love?
