When visiting the lovely city of Ghent, we’ll be given the option of taking a guided walking tour in order to find out more about its history and culture, travelling to some of the city’s most interesting attractions. The city was at one time the second largest city north of the Alps and evidence of this is apparent throughout Ghent in the number of historic buildings that are here. Some of the most impressive of these historic buildings are the city's Belfry, St Bavo's Cathedral, the castle and St Nicholas' Church.
