A visit to Amsterdam is no fleeting romance. You’ll fall head-over-heels in love with the city’s striking blend of 17th-century architecture, contemporary cultural flair, scenic canals and cobblestone alleys.
There are works of art around every turn, from the masterpieces that fill the Rijksmuseum to the captivating canal houses of Grachtengordel.
Do as the locals do and explore on two wheels, cycling around the Old Centre and through the rural farmland in the north, or see the city from a new perspective on a canal cruise.
