Sitting at the juncture of the Meuse and Sambre rivers, Namur is the capital city of Wallonia, one of the three regions of Belgium. While its port has long been important to the area, Namur is only now being included in cruise itineraries. The city is home to 110,000 people yet still has a small town feel with its walkable, cobblestoned streets and very few chain restaurants or stores. "Charming" and "intimate" are two words often used to describe this French-speaking enclave 45 miles from Brussels. With the exception of its Citadelle, which sits on a rocky overlook above the city, Namur is easy to navigate on foot.
This place has history, beginning as a trading camp during Celtic times. The Romans also setup shop here. The area really came into its own, though, during the early Middle Ages, when its Citadelle was built.
The city is well-known for its natural and manmade beauty, its rolling hills and flowing waterways as well as its traditional architecture and cobblestoned streets.
Avalon Waterways is currently the only cruise line offering Meuse River tours that stop at Namur. The heart of the old city is within blocks of where passengers disembark. In addition to stores that meet a traveler's practical needs -- including currency exchanges and health stores -- visitors will also find independent coffee houses and restaurants, chic boutiques and specialty shops offering local delicacies.
