The capital of Northern Ireland is an industrial city that was once synonymous with sectarian violence, but that has changed and Belfast has emerged as a growing cultural center. The city center is compact, and many areas are off-limits to automobiles, so it's a pleasant city to walk through. Belfast has charming architecture—as you walk, be sure to look up at the buildings, where you'll see ornate carvings ranging from faces to figurines.

Allow a minimum of three nights for visiting Belfast and the surrounding region.
