Amsterdam is unlike any city on earth. Use your free time to wander the unique neighborhoods .. The Negen Straatjes (nine little streets) in the Western canal ring full of boutiques, galleries, restaurants and bars, the now well established Jordaan, and the up and coming De Pijp neighborhoods... and explore the world class museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum, the Stedelijk Museum and many more. Take a canal boat ride and experience the city from a unique perspective. The surrounding ocean helps to keep the temperature mild with average daily high temps in the low 70's, so it will be super comfortable.
