Description

We’ll first discover the older section of Antwerp—where you’ll see the Vleeshuis Museum, the Grote Markt with its magnificent Town Hall, and the famous Brabo Fountain immortalizing the legend of the Roman soldier who saved the city from a terrible giant. We’ll then walk to the impressive Cathedral of Our Lady, a Gothic-style church that took over 200 years to build, but which was never officially completed. We’ll then head to the Diamond District to observe how the talented cutters facet the raw diamonds into the jewels we buy. Our guide will explain in detail how a diamond is valued. After our tour, you’ll be able to spend some time browsing the shop. We’ll then return on board.
