Holland & Belgium: Amsterdam to Bruges

May 27-June 4, 2024

From $6,499 Per Person Based on Double Occupancy.

Featuring Leonard Folgarait, Distinguished Professor of History of Art and Architecture, Emeritus.

Experience the magic of Holland and Belgium as you sail aboard the charming riverboat Magnifique III. Your journey begins in Amsterdam with a walking tour and a visit to the famous Rijksmuseum, which houses masterpieces such as Rembrandt's The Night Watch and Vermeer's The Milkmaid. Then board the intimate Magnifique III, a boutique river vessel with just 21 cozy cabins. As you cruise along meandering rivers and canals, you'll have the opportunity to admire the perfectly aligned Dutch windmills of Kinderdijk up close and visit Antwerp in Belgium to see the incredible Descent from the Cross by Rubens. A curator will join you for a special tour of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, which reopened in 2022 after a $100 million, 11-year renovation.

In Ghent, you'll explore the city's beautiful Saint Bavo's Cathedral and marvel at its most spectacular treasure, the Van Eyck brothers' Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, also known as the Ghent Altarpiece. Your adventure ends in the fairytale city of Bruges, where you'll go behind the scenes of an authentic medieval estate and see Michelangelo's celebrated Madonna and Child in the Church of Our Lady.
