The first stanza of John McCrae’s famous 1915 poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ honours those who died in the Great War on the Western Front. Tragically, this poem eventually became a call to arms, as the worst was yet to come. Relive history from that era on Days 6 and 7 of this tour. Many WWI-related places of interest lie within the Bruges-Panne-Ypres triangle: battlefields, museums, cemeteries, memorials. Be sure to do a bit of research beforehand to draw up your battle plan! 

The happy highlight of this holiday is beautiful Bruges, well-preserved, renovated and rebuilt with just the right medieval look. The town’s satisfying, harmonious whole creates a storybook village, complete with cobbles and swan lake.
