AMSTERDAM: Discover the Art & Architecture of the Dutch
The Dutch are famous for their master painters (Vermeer, Van Rijn, Hals), tulips, windmills, cheese, and bicycling—though not necessarily in that order. Amsterdam, the largest city and capital of the Netherlands, is most famous for its impressive Grachtengordel, the 17th-century canals that have been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2010.
PARIS: Discover the City of Light
Paris is known as the City of Light for good reason. Initially called La Ville-Lumière due to its central role in the Age of Enlightenment, the nickname later referred to the innovative gas lamps lining the streets – Paris was the first European city to use them. While the stimulating intellectual environment remains to this day, it is still Paris’s unparalleled display of light that leaves the most lasting impression; even for those who have visited the city countless times.
