TASTE AND SHINE IN ANTWERP (Museum visits, workshop and walking tour) - 8 hours

Say Belgium, and chocolate immediately comes to mind. The love story between this small country and the sweet delight has been thriving for generations. The 14 thematic rooms of Chocolate Nation will take you on a 60 to 90 minutes journey and tell you the story of Belgian chocolate. In addition, the chocolatiers will teach you how to make various chocolate creations in the workshop premises. You can, of course, take the pralines you have made home.

After lunch you will discover hidden gems of historical Antwerp on a walking tour. To complete your visit to the city, you will enter a universe full of diamonds, jewellery and silversmithing at DIVA museum. Enjoy the moment with a glass of cava - and, if you are the lucky one, you may return home with a gemstone!
