Next up in the Netherlands is a visit to The Hague, followed by a stop Vermeer's Delft. Then it's on to Belgium to see UNESCO World Heritage sites in Bruges.

The trip concludes in France where NPC travelers can honor the 70th anniversary of the Allied D-Day invasion by visiting the World War II beaches, the new Overlord Museum and the American Cemetery and Memorial. Last stop is at Mont St. Michel.
