Day 1 - Amsterdam


Start your day with a stroll through Vondelpark; if the park makes you feel extra-amorous by day, return after 11pm, when that becomes legal too. Take a walk through the Jordaan along the beautiful canals until you reach the Brouwersgracht, or Brewers Canal. There are many quaint cafes in the neighborhood, and Cinema Paradiso is a nice Italian restaurant with good food and a great bar. After lunch head over to Centraal Station where you can take a boat cruise, such as Rederij Lovers, and enjoy the sights as the city goes by. In the afternoon, stop by the Condomerie, a little condom shop and museum, where you can pick up all sorts of interesting bedroom accessories. Take a stroll through the Red Light District as you see hundreds of people looking for love, and end up at Nieuwmarkt for a late evening drink, with the beautiful weigh house (De Wag), lit up in the middle of the square.

Day 2 - Amsterdam


Start your day of exploring Amsterdam in the small square called Spui, located in the city centre. From there, enjoy the sights and smells as you stroll down the famous Bloemenmarkt (flower market). You're not far from FOAM, the photographic museum, where you can see a variety of special exhibitions focusing on extraordinary photographs from around the world. FOAM is very close to the Amstel River, so strong along it and enjoy the sights, including the vary famous Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug). If you walk along the Amstel River long enough, you'll get to Ctaste for dinner. Be brave and dine in the dark, for a truly sensual experience. Or, head over to the Tuschinski Theater for a late night film; the lavish interior is breathtaking.
