While we walk through the historic centre of Antwerp I'll show you where the painter lived and a few of the churches where works by Rubens are still on display, such as the Cathedral, Saint-Paul, the Jesuits' church, and if you want to Saint-James' where Rubens is buried.
The tour even includes a guided tour of the artist's dwellings and workshop.
On our way there'll be plenty of time to tell about the history of town, customs of people living in Antwerp and anything else you might want to hear.
A few of the local specialties such as candies, chocolate, beverages, . . . will be served during the walk.
As the Rubens House is closed on Mondays, the tour cannot be organised on that day. On Sundays, the tour can only be organised starting at 12:00 as the churches on the tour still serve as such. Bear in mind that both the churches and the museum close at 17:00.
○ Rubens' House
○ Carolus Borromeüs (jesuits' church)
○ Historic city centre
○ Tasting local specialties
○ Optional: visit to a local pub
