Experience all of Amsterdam's attractions with this up-to date, authoritative guide, packed with Insider Tips. Most holidaymakers want to have fun and feel relaxed from the moment they arrive at their holiday destination - that's what Marco Polo Guides are all about. Discover boutique hotels, authentic restaurants, the city's trendiest places and night spots, and get tips on shopping and what to do on a limited budget. There are plenty of ideas for travel with kids, and a summary of all the festivals and events that take place in the Dutch capital. Also contains: Perfect Day, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, Dutch phrasebook and index.
Narrow houses leaning against each other at slightly crooked angles, a cyclist crossing a bridge on a squeaky bicycle, people sitting out in the sun in front of the corner cafe and enjoying their coffees; in the distance the jolt of a tram lumbering along the Leidseplein. The Insider Tips reveal where you can experience sights like these, along with an organic restaurant under glass and where you can enjoy a free lunchtime concert. The Perfect Day takes you on a tour showing you various facets of the city: from breakfast at Koffie Verkeerd on the Leliegracht to a stroll along Utrechtestraat with its exciting little shops, and winding up at the Club Trouw where you can dance the night away.
The Best Of pages highlight some unique aspects of Amsterdam, recommend places to go for free, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and chill out. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you're on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains. Finally, the Dos & Don'ts point out some of the things you need to be aware of and watch out for when visiting the city.
MARCO POLO Amsterdam provides comprehensive coverage of the city. To help you find your way around there's a detailed street atlas inside, a useful public transport map in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map. A must-have for all travellers, including those who haven't bought a travel guide in the past.

What Reviewers Are Saying
Wanderlust Magazine: You've got to applaud Marco Polo's chutzpah to launch 30 new city/island guidebooks into an already pretty crowded market. Aiming to occupy the middle ground between the context-heavy luggage fillers and the context-free thinner volumes, the main USPs of these user-friendly guides are the plentiful 'Insider tips' dotted around each edition, the maps they're packaged with, and the pocket cheering price. Complete with near-magazine style features, they're certainly a less intimidating proposition than some of the big wedges on offer.
