Amsterdam

Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Resistance Museum and Rembrandt House Museum. Red Light District and The Jordaan are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Van Gogh Museum, contemplate the long history of Begijnhof, examine the collection at Museum Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder, and make a trip to Museumplein.

In March, daily temperatures in Amsterdam can reach 49°F, while at night they dip to 36°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
