Stage 2 is Rotterdam, Netherlands second biggest city. Europe’s largest port is also home to a some stunning modern constructions, which are well worth seeing. 

Next door is Belgium, and the first stop is Antwerp. Stage 3 may be famous for its diamond trade, but this historic city can also boast some architectural gems.
