Bruges is a quaint Belgian town straight out a fairytale, with its Gothic buildings, cobblestone streets, and horse and carriages. One of the best preserved cities in Europe, it is often called an open air museum. There’s tons to see throughout the small town, from its impressive Belfry to its beautiful basilica. Bruges is located an hour away from Belgium’s capital, Brussels, in West Flanders. Nicknamed the Little Venice of the North, due to its small size and tiny canal running through the city, it’s easy to get lost exploring the charming town. In this post I’ll be showing you how to have one perfect day in Bruges, through a one day long itinerary.
Once the site of gladiatorial battles, wild animal fights, and many other public spectacles, Rome’s iconic Colosseum today is visited by over six million people annually. This attraction, as known as the largest amphitheatre in the world, was recently named as one of the new seven wonders of the world. With nearly two thousand years of history behind it, the Colosseum is without a doubt a must visit spot to anyone visiting Rome. During my family and I’s visit to Italy a few years back we toured the Colosseum, and it was definitely one of my favourite things we did during our entire trip. So, for this week’s post, I thought it’d be fun to write an overall guide to the Colosseum, which is what you’ll be reading throughout this article!
