You'll never be short of things to do in Amsterdam, a city of picturesque canals, little squares, and verdant parks. Many of the important sites, including Rembrandt's grave and Anne Frank's house, along with art galleries, boutiques, pubs, and cafes, are located in the city's historical quarter, The Jordaan. Stroll along its small, winding streets and you'll get the picture why Amsterdam is called "Venice of the North." Museums will take quite a bit of your time in the city, but on a sunny day you can ride a bike through Vondelpark or take a stroll among the colorful stalls of Albert Cuyp Market.
