Ferry to Calais and on to our hotel in Holland.
Day 2 - Amsterdam including canal cruise
We visit lively Amsterdam, the city of canals, bicycles and cafés. Included in our day here is a wonderful canal cruise; probably the best way to see this unique city. We also have time to explore the city at leisure. There are plenty of atmospheric lanes and quarters to explore or famous museums to visit including the Anne Frank Museum, a thoughtful exhibition of the famous war-diarist’s life.
Day 3 - Edam & Volendam
We head first to the pretty town of Edam, world famous for its eponymous cheeses, where we can explore the quaint streets and tranquil canals of this historic area with its neat brick houses, well-preserved gables, squares and bridges. We then visit the neighbouring fishing village of Volendam, with its bustling harbour and traditional Dutch costumes giving us a flavour of Holland’s vibrant past.
Travel back to Calais for our return ferry home.
