Explore the Netherlands and Belgium on this seven-night voyage, which begins in Antwerp—home to extraordinary architecture and one of the oldest zoos in the world. See the former home of painter Peter Paul Rubens, meander through the town square, and learn about the Ellis Island immigrants at the Red Star Line Museum. Hosted by IU Professor Emeritus and Historian, Jim Madison.
Next stop: Bruges, nicknamed “Venice of the North.” Here, savor Belgium chocolate and taste the country’s infamous beverage at the Bruges beer Experience.
In Delft, watch an artisan paint porcelain at the Royal Delft factory, or walk the Madurodam, home to miniature replicas of famous Dutch landmarks.
Once in The Hague, witness the grandeur of the Peace Palace, pass through Wassenaar—the neighborhood that the Dutch royal family calls home—and admire works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at Mauritshuis.
Before heading home, take in Amsterdam. Peruse paintings at the Rijksmuseum, cycle through Waterland’s scenic wetlands, or stroll through the Keukenhof Gardens—an 80-acre, floral paradise.
