So this review is not about the actual collection, because I never managed to get beyond the entrance hall. There the staff got into a big flurry of anxiety because 'Mr. Six does not allow big bags in his house'. In case you are wondering,...More

This is an outstanding art collection in a private home, a house that is currently occupied by the 10th generation (if I recall the guide correctly) descendants of the original family. It's free, but you can only view it by appointment, which you request online....More

A tour of the home of the Six family, housing an art collection which goes back to the 1600's. It's free, but you must apply in advance. Totally worth it!!! Our guide was a delightful, knowledgeable young woman who brought each piece to life. Really...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
