Need help with itinerary based in Bruges

Jump to last reply

We're tentatively planning a 10-day (exclusive of travel days) trip to Belgium at the end of July / early August. We're thinking a week in Bruges and a few days in Brussels; we'll fly in and out of Brussels. Bruges was passionately recommended to us by a friend. I'd love to get suggestions on sights to see, activities to do including day trips as well as hotel and restaurant recommendations. We're also looking at apartments to rent in Bruges since we'll be there for a week, and it would be nice to have a kitchen. We are two adults, a 17yo boy and a 7yo girl. We do not plan to rent a car so all day trips must be by train or bus. Hotels in the city center are preferable for ease of walking and having plenty of places to go. Is Paris a day trip? That would make the 7yo princess' eyes light up! What would approximate fares be by train from Bruges or Brussels to other cities we should see on this quick trip?

Thanks so much!
