    Must See: Amsterdam
    One of the world’s most charming and also smallest cities, it is easy to see why Amsterdam is a top short break destination.

    With its extensive canal network, the city is also quieter than you would expect of a capital, with many locals choosing to get around by bike. Enjoy a stroll along the romantic waterways, admire the beautiful buildings or visit some of the world-famous museums, including Anne Frank House and the stunning Rijksmuseum.
