Description

We'll leave by coach with our guides for the city of Delft.
We'll discover this charming city made famous by its blue and white ceramics, Delftware, as well as its connections to the Dutch Royal Family and the renowned painter Johannes Vermeer. We'll stroll through the enchanting city center—where you'll be able to experience a bit of authentic Dutch living: calm canals shaded by trees, petite bridges, and historical buildings. We'll also visit a delft pottery factory in the city (or nearby) where you'll discover the secrets of making this famous imitation porcelain. We'll then head to the Oude Kerk, Nieuwe Kerk, and the Prinsenhof - where William of Orange was assassinated in 1584. Afterwards, we'll travel by coach to Rotterdam. We'll then return on board.

AMSTERDAM - DORDRECHT - GHENT - Bruges - ANTWERP - ROTTERDAM - Delft - The Hague - UTRECHT - AMSTERDAM

The vast expanse of Dutch and Belgian grasslands becomes a palette of colorful flowers in the spring. Join us as we navigate the canals alongside quintessential windmills—conjuring Vermeer and Van Gogh and indulging in Gouda and speculaas while enjoying music from one end of these northern plains to the other. These two countries have deep melodic heritages, so take advantage of this moment to (re)discover their composers and works, including the Sonata by Franck—one of the most prestigious Belgian composers—and the one by the Russian artist Myaskovsky. Delight in creations by  Hasselmans, Vieuxtemps, and Lekeu—three additional Belgian composers—as well as the virtuoso Rachmaninoff. And who can forget Die tote Stadt, the fascinating opera by Korngold that takes place in Bruges?
