Melkmarkt 15, 2000 Antwerpen, Belgium

Vrijdagmarkt 22-23, 2000 Antwerpen, Belgium
I'll be the first to admit, a museum of printing didn't sound terribly exciting to me, at first. Antwerp Belgium's Plantin-Moretus Museum certainly changed my mind. This is the only museum on the UNESCO World Heritage list and the recognition is...
Torfbrug 5, 2000 Antwerpen, Belgium
We spent the evening walking around Antwerp looking for a restaurant that would offer a different kind of mussels than the ones we had until now. We found it at the tavern-restaurant Bacino, right next to the Cathedral of Our Lady. This dish is...
