    Easy, no mess, full of streets with plenty to photograph, historic cafés, flowering channels. Go for it. Amsterdam is also this.

    He had been thrilled to know Jordaan. It is very nice and charming due to its canals. But it is almost impossible to walk through it when you're family. Bicycles have absolute priority in all Amsterdam and go at full speed. On the other hand, sidewalks are almost non-existent because in addition to narrow are filled with plants and benches to sit for what will be with a continuous sense of insecurity. More in fact liked it when I saw it from the cruise ship we did since he went with more tranquility. But, of course, you should go to see it and walk it
