6-Nights Amsterdam & Paris
From their stately palaces and medieval churches to the romance of their monuments and waterways, Amsterdam and Paris are two of the most intriguing capital cities in Europe. Guests will begin this trip with three nights in Amsterdam, where they can join the hundreds of locals pedaling their bikes along 60 miles of quiet, meandering canals. After admiring masterpieces by Rembrandt, Vermeer, and van Gogh in the world-class Rijksmuseum, they can head to Vondelpark for a peaceful pond-side picnic. A scenic train ride will deliver them to Paris, where flaky croissants and pastel-colored macarons beckon from bakery counters across the city. A cruise along the Seine provides a perfect opportunity to view the city’s emblematic landmarks, while the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay showcase breathtaking art from around the world.

Cosmopolitan Amsterdam is most famous for its narrow, gabled houses lining the canals. Interesting attractions include the medieval weighhouse, Royal Palace on Dam Square, and New Church. Its most glamorous industry is the diamond trade. Not too far from Amsterdam are the flower centers of Aalsmeer, the picturesque fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, cheese markets at Edam and Gouda, and historic Haarlem, the main center of the bulb-growing industry. Enjoy the city’s sights from a glass-topped sightseeing boat which passes characteristic gabled houses and negotiates picturesque arched bridges. Facing Dam Square, the Royal Palace was built in 1648 and is still officially the royal residence, although the royal family resides in The Hague. The marbled Citizens Hall with inlaid maps of the world is worth seeing. One of Amsterdam’s most visited sites is historic Anne Frank House. Rijksmuseum, the city’s most prestigious museum, houses the largest collection of Dutch paintings in the world. Van Gogh Museum houses a striking collection.
