Brussels stopover

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are heading to Madrid, Barcelona and Paris this summer.
Chicago to Brussels to connect. Arrive 9.15 am depart 2.15pm. Is there enough time to get out and see Brussels for maybe 2 hours? How far is the city from the airport.
On to Madrid 4 nights (Thursday to Sunday), Barcelona 3 nights (Sunday to Wednesday) and then Paris (4 nights).

I picked Madrid for the weekend part of the trip as that seems to be a more exciting time to be in town, while Barcelona is active even during the week. Is that a good plan? We are mid 30's and will do the foodie; tapas; drinks experience. Probably not much clubbing or beach time. Should we spend an extra day in Barcelona instead of Madrid?
Also, I love Paris and he will too. Should we spend less nights in Spain?
