Often getting a bad rap for all the illegal things you do can in Amsterdam, what doesn’t get touted enough is how purely charming a place it is. Going in to our trip, I knew I was going to like the city, but wasn’t prepared for how much I would LOVE the city. From it’s general quirkiness, to the architecture and smart design, to the rich, albeit foggy culture, it had me at hello. It didn’t hurt that we stayed at one of my favorite hotels of all times, CitizenM.
Amsterdam is one of those european cities that just gets it. Efficient public transportation (When visiting, get the multi-day flat fee pass; such a value. Found across the street from the train station.) makes getting around a snap. But don’t forget the comfy shoes because like Venice, Amsterdam is often-times best traveled by foot.
