You will discover why Leuven is considered one of the hidden gems of Europe and an up-and-coming city destination for those that want to avoid the tourist crowds. It has all the picturesque charm and history of other historical Flemish cities and in addition it has one of the oldest universities in the world (early 15th century!). 

There's more, because Leuven is not just a historical city. Last year, it was named the most innovative city of Europe and its mixture of students and locals makes it a very lively city, with many places to enjoy the true Belgian life with a drink and a good meal. A tour of this Belgian city would not be complete without this aspect, therefore, history and heritage are intertwined with food tastings; a history and food tour of Leuven.
