We continue the route today that we began in “Amsterdam in two days, day 1 “.

Sunday arrives and you wake up to you in one of the hotels in Amsterdam. Today it is called on to go away of swap-meets! And it is that during weekend this city offers a very interesting and many-colored option to take some to souvenir different from house. The swap-meet of Niewmarkt is especially peculiar, where the antiques, the artisan objects and those of second hand are joined in a very special mess. Déjate to fall that way, will enchant to you.

Also you must pasarte by the market of the flowers (Bloemenmarkt) and observe the colors and inhale the aromas. It is a very colorful place and you can buy bulbs of tulip to very good price. If questions will explain to you how and when to plant them.

Later you can dedicate a good short while to at random cross a less well-known zone of Amsterdam by the tourists and, calmer and for this reason, authentic: the district of the Jordaan, to the west of the city. In his origin it was a working district and today even it conserves something of his way of own life.

In the evening regálate a stroll in boat by the channels of this Venice of the North. There are many companies that offer tourist routes beginning from Prins Hendrikkade (in front of the Central station), by the Damrak and the Rokin (in center) and in the Stadhouderskade (near the Rijksmuseum). Also you can decidirte by a stroll in bici, since the supply of rent of bicycles in all the city is very ample.

When you finish thinks about monuments of Amsterdam that you need to see and acércate to discover them. Perhaps you are decided by the famous House of Ana Frank, where he was hidden with his family in “the house of back? and where its famous Newspaper wrote. Perhaps you prefer the Amstelkring Museum, and to discover a clandestine catholic church hidden in an attic thus to elude the protestant prohibition of the catholic cult. Also you can visit the House of Rembrandt, the Historical Museum, the Museum of Sex, or any other that you choose, since the cultural supply of Amsterdam is very ample. You decide!
