Amsterdam is an urban explorer’s paradise. The city is home to nearly 9,000 monuments and 400 kilometers of bicycle trails, as well as a seemingly endless network of pristine canals crisscrossed by quaint arched bridges. Consider upgrading your seats to Alitalia’s premier ‘Ottima’ or ‘Magnifica’ business classes for an unparalleled luxury experience on your flight to Amsterdam.
If you’re traveling to Amsterdam for the first time, taking a cruise on the Canal Ring is a great way to sample many of the city sights. A UNESCO world heritage site since 2010, the Ring forms a series of concentric circles that spiral outward and connect to 165 canals throughout the city. Once off the water, head to the Van Gogh Museum, a gallery featuring the world’s largest collection of the great artist’s paintings. Between attractions, stroll along tulip-lined avenues teaming with bustling sidewalk cafés that beckon to passersby.
Amsterdam has invested heavily into the development of its waterfront district, which is now home to a wide variety of attractive and exciting restaurants, nightclubs and cheap hotels in Amsterdam that cater to young adults. For the best weather during your visit, book your tickets to Amsterdam for June or July.
