Begin with a coach tour of the city making stops on the way to take pictures of this beautiful city. There are amazing sights and scenery here.  See one of Europe’s famous landmarks – The Atomium.  Built for the 1958 World Fair, this space age structure gained popularity in the recent years.  Moving on, you will see the Elegant Royal Palace and The European Parliament. Arriving at the Old Town, take a walk along the narrow streets and experience the bustle.  You will also find sophisticated shops here.

The Centerpiece of the Old Town is the spectacular Grand Place.  It is one of the finest squares in the world. Just a short distance away, is one of Brussels more amusing sight – The famous Manneken-Pis. At just 2 feet tall, it will raise a smile on your face. Don’t forget to purchase a souvenir of the same. Besides, you can do some people watching and relaxing around the city.

Food in Brussels is mostly local. You may not find too many multi-cuisine restaurants, but the local cuisine is worth exploring.  Experience the Belgian Café culture, and do taste the famous Belgian Beer. Brussels is also famous for its Waffles. You may find it all around the city. Make sure to try the famous Godiva chocolates. This Belgian chocolate is famous all around the world. As far as shopping is concerned, it’s neither too good nor too bad. We would suggest you spend more time in exploring the city.
