This month, I'm going to take you to Ghent, one of the most romantic cities in our little Belgium, and the perfect place to celebrate Valentine's Day.
With its many bridges and river running through it, the city of Ghent is ideal for celebrating Valentine's Day. In the evening, its lighting makes it simultaneously mysterious and cosy. Enjoy a pleasant stroll before dining in one of Ghent's many restaurants before retiring to bed in an inviting hotel room.
A carriage ride to see the sights
There is no better way of introducing your valentine to the beauties of Ghent than by taking a carriage ride of thirty minutes duration. The tour starts at Emile Braunplein and passes the main monuments of the city. You could also opt for a boat ride on the Lys.
Take a break by Graslei docks
Whether you prefer to rest by the banks of the Lys or to sit at one of the many heated terraces, the spectacular views offered by the beautiful facades reflected in the river is the perfect setting for a romantic declaration. A short tour on the Saint Michel bridge will allow you to immortalise this moment with a selfie in a magical landscape integrating the main monuments of the city.
