You will love Amsterdam. It's like San Francisco atmosphere except 400 years older. You must see the Remrandt's as they are awe inspiring. The people are wonderful! Just walking around and exploring is the most fun of all. You can get anywhere by trolley. Good Italian is House of David near dam square area. The Argentine steakhouse Gaucho's is pretty good too!
