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 – Marken & Volendam
We head first to the charming seaside village of Marken, a former island set on a peninsula. Marken is unique, not just for its preservation of many of the island’s traditions, but also for its characteristic houses built on stilts and knolls. We then visit the 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.
