Floriade, the World's Fair of horticultural shows, is the largest public event in the Netherlands. The exhibition, which takes place only once every 10 years, will make its third appearance of the 21st Century from April to October 2022 and will have exhibitions from more than 30 countries, all set in sixy hectares (148 acres). The Expo's location will move from Venlo to Almere, a modern "garden city" near Amsterdam that was built on land reclaimed from the sea. The theme of the show will be "Growing Green Cities", an appropriate motto, given that the site will become a new urban district named Hortus after Floriade closes. We also visit Keukenhof, a unique and unforgettable experience, where more than 8 million bulbs bloom each spring. 

Day 1

Depart home area and head to Folkestone for the Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. We continue through France then into Belgium and stop in Ghent, Belgium's best kept secret, for lunch to be purchased. An important port, Ghent's city centre is a pedestrian area that is like a museum to early Flemish architecture and a testament to the city's medieval might. Afterwards continue into Holland where we will arrive at the hotel in time to freshen up before our evening meal.

Day 2

There are more than 8 million bulbs in bloom each spring in Keukenhof, with a total of 800 varieties of tulips. A unique and unforgettable experience! Afterwards see the unique Flower Parade of the bulb growing region. This is the only Flower Parade that is composed of bulb flowers such as hyacinths, tulips and daffodils. The procession consists of 20 large decorated floats and 30 flower adorned exclusive cars, accompanied by marching bands. We return to our hotel for time to relax before our evening meal.
