Reviews of Amsterdam

Impossible to find the slightest fault in Amsterdam. A smaller capital city, it is irresistible!

My suggestion:
Even if the bicycle is the symbol of the whole city and even the country, it's above all by boat, along the canals, that you must discover Amsterdam for the first time.
My review

I am literally crazy in love with this city As much as you know what's going to follow before you continue reading, it's impossible for me to be objective when talking about Amsterdam as I am mad about it. Is it possible to think about a trip to the Netherlands without going to Amsterdam? Of course not. The capital has all the advantages of a city without the disadvantages

For the first time, you don't need to be in a hurry and you can discover the city with the slow rhythm of the water which glides along the canals. The vision is completely different and absolutely sensational.

As soon as you get back to solid ground, do as the local population do and let yourself go along with the happiness of the bicycle. Amsterdam is travelled around by bicycle

Another advantage, Amsterdam has enough attractive features and diversity to please everyone. Lovers, young people, families, singles... there's something to suit all tastes

It's impossible to keep quiet about the reputation of its most scandalous quarters, but Amsterdam is not summarised by its coffee shops and ladies in windows. Amsterdam has some of the most beautiful and passionate museums on the continent. You're going to adore Amsterdam, I can guarantee it.
