    London and Brussels, what could be better? In six nights, get to know these two exciting and cultural-rich capitals.  Start off in lovely London. Hop on an iconic red double-decker bus and tour the sprawling city with ease. Whether you prefer iconic monuments or locals-only neighborhoods, you'll find it here. Don't forget the fish and chips! A comfortable train ride takes you to Brussels, Belgium's capital and the headquarters of the European Union. A true mélange of cultures, Brussels enchants visitors with its ornate Grand Place, Belgian waffle stands and quirky cultural institutions like a museum dedicated to comic books.
