Detailed Itinerary: Amsterdam to Namur - Southbound (WAN)

Skip to Brussels to Amsterdam itinerary

Day 1: Amsterdam, Holland

Welcome to Holland! The remainder of the day is free to start exploring this delightful 700-year old city with its elegant and classic architecture, cafés and restaurants that give it a distinct ambiance!

Day 2: Amsterdam (Embarkation Day)

This morning, set out to discover the treasures of this city by CANAL BOAT, cruising through the elegant grachten lined with stately homes dating back to Amsterdam’s “Golden Age.”. Explore on your own this afternoon before boarding your ship and meeting the crew at a welcome reception. Sail out of Amsterdam at dinner time. (B,D)

Day 3: Dordrecht

Sitting between two branches of the Rhine, charming Dordrecht inspired many painters in the 17th and 18th centuries. There are picturesque harbors in Dordrecht, but no canals. The Grote Kerk (Great Church) is the most well-known monument and a landmark, while the Voorstraatshaven forms the backbone of the Old Town. Your GUIDED TOUR will show you the highlights of this attractive town, and you may even catch sight of Noah’s Ark. Explore on your own this afternoon or join an optional excursion to nearby Keukenhof gardens. (B,L,D)

Day 4: Ghent, Belgium

In a unique way, Ghent, the “diamond” of Flanders, has managed to preserve its medieval charm and power while keeping up with the times. A LOCAL GUIDE will proudly point out that the city center alone is a showcase of medieval Flemish wealth and commercial success. Visit ST. BAAF’S CATHEDRAL, which houses remarkable art treasures, including the most important work in Flemish art, The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, created by the Van Eyck brothers around 1432. On your own, explore the traffic-free streets in the city center; see Gravensteen, the “castle of the counts.” an imposing castle in the city that was built in 1110; or join an optional excursion to Bruges with its criss-crossed canals and charming patrician houses. (B,L,D)

Day 5: Excursion to Ypres & the Battlefields of Eastern Flanders

A moving day today as you travel by motorcoach for a full day to view the WWI battlefields of Ypres and Eastern Flanders. The war on the Western Front was fought in three phases, and lasted from 1914 until 1918, leaving behind a scarred landscape in Belgian Flanders and northeastern France. Today, there are thousands of war graves and commemorative memorials for the fallen of many nations along the line of the battlefields that formed the Western Front. The city of Ypres was fought over for nearly all four years of the Great War and was practically destroyed. Through careful reconstruction, however, you would never guess the buildings date from less than a century ago. It is near here that John McCrae’s famous poem, “In Flanders fields the poppies blow,” is believed to have been written. In many countries, poppies are worn in remembrance of Armistice Day every November 11th. (B,L,D)

Day 6: Antwerp

Antwerp is Belgium’s second-largest city and one of the world’s most important ancient seaports. It merges the new with the old and offers the attractions and atmosphere you’d expect from a European city: friendly people, fabulous architecture, chic shops, interesting museums, vibrant cafés, charming galleries, and historic monuments. INCLUDED SIGHTSEEING with a Local Guide shows you its superb architecture; the central GROTE MARKT, lined with 16th-century houses; the beautiful City Hall, completed in 1566; and the Church of Our Lady, started in 1352 and featuring paintings by Rubens. An optional excursion is available to nearby Brussels, Belgium’s capital and home of the European Union. (B,L,D)

Day 7: Maastricht, Holland

This morning, arrive in Maastricht, the bustling cosmopolitan capital of the province of Limburg. A LOCAL GUIDE will show you the sights of this vibrant university town: the lovely cathedrals, old houses and buildings, and the impressively cobblestoned town center. Later, take advantage of free time to explore on your own. Maybe wander through the hidden alleys or relax with a drink at a café in Vrijthof, the town’s main square. (B,L,D)

Day 8: Namur, Belgium

Namur is located on two rivers, the Meuse and the Sambre, and was an ideal location for the earliest Roman settlements. The streets of the town are where its charm and atmosphere lie and much of Namur has been dedicated to pedestrians, making it easy to get around. The symbol of the city is the snail, and visitors are encouraged to relax and enjoy the charming medieval squares and gracious streets lined with mansions, chic shops, and cafés. See the striking Namur Fortress, one of Europe’s largest. Join a Local Guide for a GUIDED TOUR of this city. (B,L,D)

Day 9: Namur (Disembarkation Day)

Your vacation ends after breakfast this morning. (B)
