Brussels General: 440 reviews and 549 photos
Favorite thing: Central Brussels is divided into two main areas, the Lower and Upper Towns.
The Lower Town comprises the medieval city center, built around the imposing<font color='red'size='3'>Grand Place</font>, a former market square. The area is easy to get around on foot, its little streets leading to popular quarters such as <font color='red'size='3'>Ilôt Sacré, Ste Catherine, St Géry and Marolles</font>.
The Upper Town, to the southeast, has a vastly different atmosphere. The traditional base of Brussels' French-speaking elite, it's home to wide boulevards, major museums, chic shopping areas around Sablon and ave Louise, and monumental buildings including the Belgian parliament.
