Gent was a large and important city in Europe during the Middle Ages. It was larger then London and second only to Paris in size.

On this 3-hour tour you'll get a glimpse of a medieval castle, called Gravensteen, built in 1180AD. You'll enter St. Bavo Cathedral, consecrated in 942AD. The Cathedral is also home to a great artistic masterpiece of the Renaissance-The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb- one of the most coveted paintings in the world. You'll see these highlights while exploring Ghent's trendy shops and tasting its delicacies-like beer-served continuously in Ghent since the Crusaders.


You will be taken to world-recognized landmarks and the hidden corners of Ghent which are within walking distance. Ghent has a car-free historical center. Added to your historic tour will be ample opportunities to experience local tastes and culture. You will visit authentic shops and boutiques-both trendy and traditional.
