Tulips & Chocolate: Exploring the Art & Culture of Holland & Belgium

April 12th-20th, 2019 | Maximum Group Size: 15 Participants | Availability: Open

This spring we explore the gardens, art, cuisine and culture of this tiny nation and that of neighboring northern Belgium – together known collectively as Flanders. We begin and end in Amsterdam, a city built on a network of canals with its tall and narrow brick houses reflected in the glimmering water. We include a guided tour of the world-famous Rijksmuseum, spend a day at the Royal Palaces to the east of the city and visit the magnificent Keukenhof Gardens.  Our travels then take us over the border to the city of Bruges.  Known as the “Venice of the North” due to the many picturesque canals crisscrossing the city, we will investigate the three main things for which the region is famous: art, beer and chocolate! Join us this spring for indulgence of the senses, beauty of the season and insight into Dutch culture and history.
