The ultimate Amsterdam guide book!
Amsterdam is a place where high culture meets downtown vibe, where Van Goghs vie with museums of cannabis, where 17th century palaces rest weightlessly on sand, and cosy bars compete with cool designer clubs, funky shops and chic cuisine. With more canals than Venice, Amsterdam counterbalances a picture-perfect 17th century hauteur with an easy-going village atmosphere and an arts and entertainment scene that s as high energy as it is cosmopolitan and cutting-edge.
