Amsterdam Canal Ring
#8 of 307 Sights & Landmarks in Amsterdam
The best way to see the wonderful canal houses and their amazing architecture is to take an small open boat tour where you have an unobstructed view and can take great photos.
Amsterdam Canal Ring is beautiful canals lines with historic homes all with a water view, we picknicked while watching restoration of one of the homes along the banks really quite fascinating.

The Amstel

The city is, obviously, full of canals and this one delivers with everything a visitor would want--bridges, boats, street art, bikes, and views of historic homes, shops and churches.
