    This urban extension was the largest and most homogeneous of its time. It was a model of large-scale town planning, and served as a reference throughout the world until the 19th century.

    For feeling the essence of the city you need take a ferry trip down its canals. Bridges cross crossing, nearby cafés, boat houses and water locks, feels like traveling through the pulse of the city.

    Took two different tours and they all seem to go to the same spots. Use a company that uses the pre-recorded guides in 15 languages.

    The word of "Flânerie" should be made up to define walking along these canals. What a wonderful experience!

    Take a picnic or a bottle of wine with you and relax on a canal tour - it's such a great way to see the city and experience the intricate canal system (and of course to get out of the rain!!).

    The differentiator of Amsterdam . You have the choice between having a canal tour with one trip or tale the hop-on-hop-off canal cruise for 24 Euro per day .

    Amsterdam'a gelip kanalları görmeden gitmek ve fotoğraf çektirmemek büyük hatadır! Özellikle Dam Meydanından aşağı inen yollarda ki kanallar görülmeye ve fotoğraf çekimi için ideal..
