You'll need a minimum of three days in Brussels to get a feel for the city. It's an easy destination to explore on foot, and the best place to begin is at the ornate Grand Place, one of the most perfectly preserved of all market squares in Europe. A short walk southwest on the Rue de l'Etuve, you'll see the famous Manneken-Pis fountain, regarded by Belgians with reverence and a healthy dose of humor. Continue to the Sablon, an old aristocratic district famous for its markets, Gothic church and picturesque little park. After you've had your fill of the Grand and Petit Sablons, head up Rue de la Regence to the Royal Museums of Fine Arts—well worth a few hours, especially if you're interested in early Flemish art or works by Belgian painters.
