Day 8: Paris | Amsterdam

Explore Amsterdam: Arrive on a morning train and explore Amsterdam on foot. With 1,200 bridges crisscrossing 160 canals, Amsterdam is one of Europe’s most charming cities. On your walking tour, pass by the 13th-century dam built to prevent the Zuiderzee sea from ooding the city. See the Begijnhof, a lovely 14th-century hidden sanctuary for the sisterhood of the Catholic Beguines, before making your way to the city square of Waterlooplein.

 

Free time: Take some time to roam the city on your own. Dinner: Join your group for a delicious meal.

 

Day 9: Amsterdam

 

Sightseeing tour of Amsterdam: A local guide will show you the Westerkerk (West Church), where Rembrandt is buried. Pass by the lower markets—Amsterdam is known for its colorful tulips. See the Koninklijk Paleis (Royal Palace), once the home of the Dutch Royal Family, before continuing to Rembrandtplein, a bustling square that comes alive at night.

 

Anne Frank House: Visit the Anne Frank House, where the young girl hid with her family from 1942 to 1944. This is also the site where she penned her poignant diary, which has been translated into 67 languages worldwide.
