Grand Start: Utrecht

Located in the heart of the Netherlands and capital of the province of the same name, Utrecht, with its 322,000 inhabitants, is the fourth biggest city in the country.

Founded in the Antiquity during the Roman era, in the Middle Ages it was an important religious and commercial centre. Later, in 1713, it hosted the signing of the Utrecht treaty that ended the War of the Spanish Succession. Today, Utrecht is renowned for its university, which is the country’s biggest and one of the most prestigious in Europe. The Dom, the 112-metre high tower of Saint Martin Cathedral, is the symbol of the city through which pass canals bordered by terraces, cafés and restaurants.
