Antwerp, Belgium's second largest city is also home to Europe's second largest harbour and has kept many memories of its rich past. Above all, it is the city of P.P. Rubens, world famous master painter of the seventeenth century. We drive to the Market Square with its ancient houses and the Cathedral of Our Lady (entrance fee included). This Cathedral contains, amongst other treasures, two of Rubens' masterpieces: 'The Elevation of the Cross' and 'The Descent from the Cross'. Antwerp is also the world's diamond centre and we will have time to visit a diamond workshop. We end the tour with a drive through the harbour.
During the walking part of this tour, the guide will be available in English, French, German, Spanish and Dutch languages only. On board the coach, the guide will still be there to provide assistance, but a very brief commentary via headphones in Italian, Swedish and Japanese will also be available.
