Wallonia travel guide
French-speaking Wallonia sits in the southern portion of Belgium, a cyclist's heaven of small towns, historical castles, and lush river basins. Urbanized and economically prosperous in its northern half, Wallonia remains a mostly rural and sparsely populated region in its southeastern section. Most visitors use the regional capital Namur as a convenient base camp for day trips into the Wallonian countryside, a flat and fertile land fed by the rivers Meuse and Sambre. An alternative vacation idea, touring the region's "Industrial Valley," offers you a chance to discover the former backbone of Belgium's heavy industry, noted for containing four World Heritage-listed mining sites.
