As you may have noticed on our Instagram, these days we were in Holland, in Amsterdam precisely.
We couldn’t be happier for our choice this time. We had never been here, but it was so enjoyable. First off: if you plan to stay for many days, you have to consider some hostels, cause the hotels and apartments to rent are quite expensive. Nonetheless Amsterdam is one of the most expensive city in the world. With regard to the flight, it’s much cheaper thanks to Ryanair connections.
Once landed in Amsterdam, we took a train (you find the train stop linked to the airport). When we reached the station, we had two choices to continue: hiring bycicles or take the tram (as you probably know, these are the most common means of transportation in Amsterdam). We opted for the second and we stopped at the well known Museum Quarter Square.
There, in addition to visit Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum (the best collection of the artist) you can see the famous sign:
Then we procedeed to Damrak street to find one of the most known neighborhood in Amsterdam: Centrum (Center) which has further more than just his renowned Canal Ring (possibily the symbol of the city). In fact, there are plenty of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, museums, a theatre, a huge cinema and even nightclubs.
Another fantastic neighborhood in Amsterdam has to be the Jordaan, considered the most touristic one with a long list of remarkable sites: Anne Frank House, Lindengracht Market, Café Chris among these.
A nearby microneighborhood is “The 9 Streets”, that is full of design shops, special stores and chic bars.
After seeing all these famous points we walked towards the world known Vondelpark just to witness some incredible display of nature. In this park area people are used to do many activities as jogging, working out, playing football and some photographers spend their afternoon capturing the diverse fauna and flora in it.
In those days we had a great time in what could be considered the heart of the city: Dam Square. This town plaza is known for its buildings, its great venues and daily events. It’s one of the main point of attractions you should not miss.
Our evenings and night were always spent in two well known places: the Leidseplein and Rembrandt Square, full of restaurants ,street artists, discos, cinemas, theatres and even a casino. There are also the most famous coffee shop in the world “The Bulldog” and two great sites for music lovers, Paradise and The Melkweg.
For singles you should not miss also the famous Red Light District Amsterdam, for obvious reasons a must destination for people all over the world. Other than the public use of marijuana, this motivation represents a force for tourism in the capital.
As you may have understood there a lot of things to do in a city like this one. So you can not make a mistake by visiting it. We would suggest you to spend at least a week because you would have the chance to take your time and not miss any of these awesome things.
Now we’re heading to Eindhoven where our plane is going to leave tomorrow night for our next destination.
Stay tuned for more adventures and travels and feel free to suggest us a possible destination in Europe that you would like to be covered by us.
Thank you for your time and remember to like and share as always.
See you soon guys!
