Amsterdam is one of the most famous cities in the world, with a unique way of life and a style all its own. Once an artistic and cultural hub to rival those among history’s greatest, Amsterdam now enjoys a reputation as a fascinating metropolis with an edgier side to it. There are several excellent areas for shopping, and you'll find everything from trendy boutiques to big-name department stores all over the city. Wander the cobbled streets and you’re sure to find something to take your fancy, whether you’re looking for fashion, fragrance, flowers or even diamonds.
