Overview

"FREE tastings in the most exclusive chocolate boutiques like Neuhaus, Godiva, Wittamer, Marcolini..." For the love of tasting them, for the desire of touching them, for the art of making them--it was in Belgium that modern chocolates were born.

Whatever the Swiss might contend, Belgian chocolates are indubitably the finest in the world, and they’re so lethally addictive that they ought to be sold with a government health warning.

This walking tour of Brussels begins with a master class taught by a chocolatier, who schools you in the art of making orangettes, pralines, and decorative Easter eggs. Make your own delicious chocolates, which you can take home.

Explore the marvelously preserved buildings in the Grand’Place, and peek in the windows of the antique shops in Sablon.

Walk along a boulevard lined with decadent chocolate shops, and listen to the quavering melodies of street musicians in Ilot Sacre.
