Summary

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities...

Relaxed and friendly, the smallest of Europe's major capital cites feels more like a village but its history is controversial, fascinating, and often bloody. Our tour starts at Anne Frank's house and then goes on via the beautiful Westerkerk church to the city's simple but moving monument to its gay residents who have suffered over the years.

Further on, we'll explain the meaning of the XXX that you'll see everywhere and reveal where the term Dutch courage comes from. As we pick out the other sites, such as Dam Square, we'll tell you about why this unique city looks the way it does and what is being done to preserve it so you'll have a sense of the real Amsterdam as it is today - not just the picture-postcard image.

As you stroll through the flower market, we'll tell you why it is that tulips are associated with Amsterdam and why, despite his talent and fame, the city's most famous painter led such a tragic life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
