P&O Cruise to Bruges: Time in Bruges
We opted for a simple, yet quite expensive, Bruges at your own pace tour. This was essentially a coach trip from the boat to the centre of Bruges. While we could have made our own way to Bruges this tour made it simple and that was what this trip was all about. It also left the boat around 11am which allowed us to enjoy a rare lie in and leisurely breakfast.
Bruges is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe. It has a wonderful collection of wooden and stone buildings on cobbled streets with canals crisscrossing the town and surrounding it on all sides providing a protective moat over the many centuries it has existed.
Strolling arund Bruges was a bit like walking through an oil painting as you stroll along the colourful streets peering in the windows of artisan chocolate shops (of which it has many) and watching people enjoy a horse and carriage ride along the cobbled streets.

Bruges was a lovely place to visit and a real spot for foodies.
