Brussels is all about variety and diversity. There are splendid churches, royal palaces, the beautiful Town Hall and other glories of the Grand Place, and Art Nouveau par excellence – not to mention the shining Atomium and glittering EU buildings. With its cosmopolitan outlook and high quality of life, Brussels is much more than a political capital.

With MARCO POLO Brussels you can explore the various quarters that make up this large, green city. Whether posh or studenty, trendy or traditional, mildly Bohemian or a little bit of everything, each district possesses its own distinct character. The practical pocket-sized guide will show you the highlights of the city and introduce you to some of the many great cafés, bars and restaurants that are such a feature of this gourmet citadel. The Insider Tips reveal where you can get the best chocolate and where you can drop in for a fortifying beer or wine after you've finished your shopping.

Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you’re on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains, while the ‘Where to Start’ boxes highlight the best places to begin sightseeing, shopping and going out in the evening. The Best Of pages highlight what is currently in vogue in Brussels, recommend places to go for free, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and put your feet up when you've had enough of sightseeing. The City Walks take you from medieval Brussels to the city of contemporary fashion design, through the University area and to the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings. The Dos and Don'ts explain why you should always book a table at a restaurant and why you should never take an unlicensed taxi.

MARCO POLO Brussels provides comprehensive coverage of all areas of the city. To help you find your way around there’s the detailed Street Atlas, a public transport map in the cover, plus a pull-out map.
