The Lourve is filled with iconic art and the Mona Lisa does not live up to the hype. You also might want to skip waiting for Buckingham Palace's guard change and instead indulge in afternoon tea at the Ritz. If you're a Beatles fan, tour Abbey Road Studios rather than have a photo op on Abbey Road.

The whole of Amsterdam plus some more is entirely built on water. In fact you might notice how some buildings are a bit lop-sided – it’s because the soil underneath is so swampy. . . Amsterdam is home to highest number of nationalities out of any city in the world. . . Because it is such a multicultural city, over 85% of Amsterdam residents can speak more than two languages – usually Dutch, English and sometimes even a third which is quite often German. Dutch are the tallest people in the world.
