    After a restful night, board a motorcoach to see the sights of one of the most unique cities in Europe. The city center consists of 90 islands, linked by 400 beautiful bridges and a street pattern that is largely unchanged since the 19th century. On tour we will see the Royal Palace, the Museum Quarter, and we’ll also stop to stroll along the beautiful flower market. Enjoy a canal cruise through some of Amsterdam’s hundreds of canals and waterways that are lined with 17th century architecture. The balance of the day is yours to explore on your own. Be sure to stop by the Oude Kerk (Old Church), the oldest building in the city or perhaps stop by the Anne Frank House.

In September 1944, the British and the Polish were given the task of securing the bridge at Arnhem, a campaign captured in the movie “A Bridge Too Far”. You will drive past various spots associated with this event. We’ll also visit the Airborne Museum in Oosterbeek, once the headquarters of the British 1st Airborne Division.

In the Golden Age (17th c), the Dutch East India Company flourished, evidenced by the merchant houses and storefronts that line the canals. For a feat of modern technology, you may choose to visit the impressive Delta Works. This expansive series of dams was built to protect the area against flooding and high tides. Several original windmills still stand on the outskirts of town, representing another innovative technology of a bygone era.
