WHAT WE LOVE

For a small city, Amsterdam has quite a big personality! Despite its size, this bustling city has all the qualities of a huge city - nightlife, Michelin restaurants, and efficient transportation. This idyllic capital of the Netherlands is well known for its canals, doll-like houses, and world-class museums. Get your feet ready for a whole lot of walking - this city is best seen on foot! If you're in for a cultural excursion, make sure to book a ticket to the Anne Frank Museum, Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Musuem! A trip to Amsterdam isn't complete without a stop at the red light district, Jordaan, and a canal tour, too!
