Amsterdam has more canals than Venice, more bridges than Paris, more bicycles than cars, and perhaps more tolerance than any other city in the world. It's what makes Amsterdam truly unique and such a wonderful place to visit. Because the city is so compact, you can see a lot even if your stay is short. Its sights are as diverse as its residents, including beautiful churches, lovely gardens, world-class museums and, of course, the infamous Red Light District. Cultured, vibrant, fun-and easy to get around-Amsterdam is the perfect European city to explore.

As our title says, this little guide will make your trip to Amsterdam easy. Tuck it into your pocket and head out for a great day of sightseeing: You'll have over 100 places of interest at your fingertips, with insider tips on cafés, restaurants, shops, and outdoor markets. We've also given directions for great themed walks around the city, along the canals and, of course, through the "naughty" part of town (this is Amsterdam, after all!). Forget those large, bulky travel tomes. This handy little pocket guide to Amsterdam is all you need to make your visit enjoyable, memorable-and easy.
