Full description
Whereas the NY Times describes Utrecht as a city that deserves more than a pleasant day trip from Amsterdam, according to a leading Australian news site, the city has the most beautiful canals of Europe. And they are right. With its iconic Dom Tower, churchyards, the old city centre and its canals, Utrecht is absolutely stunning. A walking tour of Utrecht is a fantastic way to discover Utrecht. Meet your guide at Vredenburgplein, the square nearby the train station and The Mall. Embark on a walking tour through the old city centre with your knowledgeable guide and learn about the city’s history that started around 2,000 years ago when Utrecht was part of the Limes; the northern border of the Roman Empire. During the tour you not only learn about historical Utrecht, but also about history is connected to contemporary issues that play a role in Dutch society. Follow your guide to the city's main square for it houses the historical Dom Church. With its dominating tower, it is Utrecht's pride and joy. Continue through little cobbled streets and churchyards; all leading to what has been for centuries the city’s main artery, the 1.5 mile long old canal Oudegracht. Along and nearby the canal there are many cafés and restaurants. A great way to getting to know the city with all its 'secrets'!
