Antwerp - Ghent - Both, which one, how long?

Jump to last reply

I am researching a trip for summer 2012 - the focus of which does not even include Belgium - but Belgium is geographically in between the others so now am thinking of stopping for a few days and even after some initial research can't decide whether I want to stop in Antwerp or Ghent or both and for how long.

I like to just wander around and take photos - I'll stop into churches and museums but they are not my focus. Photography is my main interest, that and just 'soaking up the atmosphere'. I also like castles and see that both cities have one. So questions - does it make more sense to do one night in one of them and two in the other or is that too rushed. Or should I do three nights in one and day trip to the other? If so which? I don't need to see every last sight or spend hours on dining.

The trip starts with two weeks in Italy and Slovenia/Croatia after which my husband flies home (from Milan) and I want to spend roughly another two weeks. I was thinking of about five days in Holland and I would fly home from Amsterdam. I have always wanted to go to Luxembourg and it never fits in any trip I've taken so was thinking I could go from Milan to Luxembourg and then to Amsterdam - which puts Belgium right in the middle. So since I'm going through there anyway.....

Have already been to Bruges and Brussels
