Amsterdam
The Essential
Highly recommended
With its network of canals, part of which is designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, its brick houses, its port, its intense trading and cultural activity, Amsterdam - capital of the Netherlands - is sure to win you over. But the reputation of the "Venice of the North" does not stop at that. This is a city that embraces the tenets of tolerance and lust for life, an ethos you can see in action, for example, among the locals gathering for convivial drinks at the end of the day.
