Publisher's Description

See the best of Amsterdam with this streamlined walking guide, complete with 11 step-by-step itineraries and maps, to help you explore the city like a pro and navigate like a local. Created in a handy, take-along format, this guide is written by a seasoned travel writer to help conjure the spirit of the place in elegant text enhanced by National Geographic's famous eye for good pictures. More than just a guidebook, Walking Amsterdam is full of information about the city and its people. The guide is divided into the following sections:

The Whirlwind Tours section shows you how to see the entire city in a day or a weekend; what sites will interest kids most; plus tours catered to shoppers and history lovers.  

The Neighborhoods section presents the city broken down into six itineraries that lead you to the best sites in each of the city's greatest neighborhoods--from Niewe Zijde and Oude Zijde to the Museum District and New South. Each itinerary includes such special features as "Distinctly Amsterdam...," highlighting quintessential aspects of the city (tulips, Genever & beer, and Dutch design); "Best Of," providing specific thematic groupings of sights, such as biking around town, canals, and Dutch food; and "in-depth" spreads that take a deep dive into a major museum or other iconic sight along the route.

Travel Essentials provides information on how to get to the city and how to get around once you're there, as well as hand-picked hotels and restaurants.

Walking Amsterdam is part of an exciting pocket-guide series from National Geographic that showcases the world's great cities. Travelers will find top-notch, streamlined, and useful local knowledge that goes beyond the Internet basics to ensure a rewarding, authentic, and memorable urban experience.
