Brussels is the seat of the European Union. This Belgian city certainly has a long history and is a user-friendly place for tourists to visit. Yes, you'll find cutting edge restaurants here, but the best that Brussels has to offer is found in its bakeries, chocolate shops and beer halls. Belgian chocolate is as good as its reputation leads you to believe. You can certainly find chocolatiers on your own, but it is possible to take a walking tour to some of the best venues for tasting these sweet, edible works of art. Belgium has some of the best beers on Earth, so a beer-themed walking tour to local tap-houses can be part of your experience as well.
