One of the most beautiful cities in the world. Home to historical monuments such as Notre Dame, the Eiffel tower (320m), Bastille, Louvre and many more. Much of the city was re-designed by Haussmann in the 19th century. Paris has a population of more than 2 million people, and the city is divided into 20 “arrondissements” (districts) which are numbered 1 to 20. The river Seine divides the city into the Rive Gauche on the south and the Rive Droite on the north banks of the river. The river is still very busy with commercial barges transporting cargo in and out. The historical name for the city is Parisii by the Gauls, however the Romans arrived in 52 B.C. and changed the name to Lutetia Many of the famous boulevards and city centre buildings where transformed by Haussmann and Napolean III (Charles Louis Napoléon Bonaparte). The streets where made much wider, places and squares where built and the buildings completely rebuilt. The atmosphere was totally transformed, space and perspective being main ingredient such as you can see on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, whilst preserving historical buildings such as Notre Dame. This also influenced other French cities to change.The night life is rich with the famous cabarets such as the Moulin Rouge, Lido and the Crazy Horse.

Bruges is a city that will capture your heart. It is a city of human proportions, but one that can never be truly fathomed. Its history has made it great, a fact that garnered it the title of a Unesco World Heritage City. Retaining the mysteries of the Middle Ages and unashamedly exuberant, Bruges has been an international metropolis for centuries. The Bruges Begijnhof (beguinage) has been a World Heritage Site since 1998. The belfry was added a year  later, and in 2000 the entire historic centre of Bruges was placed on the list. In 2009 the annual event, the Procession of the Holy Blood, was also identified as intangible cultural heritage. Bruges not only has a valuable architectural heritage and history, it is also fame for its brick-Gothic buildings. The original and integrated medieval fabric of the city has also been retained. Please telephone our  European department on 0198 404381 ( 9 lines )   ext 200 – 202 for a quote ( prices are   based on  either 3,4 or 5 day stay at a  3 star hotel accomdation and include  either  bed& breakfast or half board. return coach travel,/channel  tunnel / Dover / Calais crossing.)
