Create an itinerary including Herengracht
Adorning the picturesque streets of the city and providing river transportation, Herengracht winds past the homes of the rich, showcasing centuries-old houses and quaint cafes. Among all of Amsterdam's canals, this one is the finest and most fashionable. See important and historic sites, such as the mayor's residential quarters and a house where Peter the Great stayed. Snap a photo of the seven bridges of the Reguliersgracht, which--if viewed from a correct angle--give the impression of a tunnel. Look for the oldest residential house in the city--a small 1590 home with a stepped gable, overlooking the water.
