My trip in Netherlands, last day

We spent the last day in Netherlands visiting Utrecht, to which we haven’t given the right importance.

Utrecht was founded by the Romans in 47 AD to protect an important position for the crossing of the river Rhine.

This city was the first in the Netherlands to embrace the Catholic faith, and in the Middle Ages it became an important religious center, extending its control over most of the Netherlands until 1527.

The city center preserves many medieval churches and monasteries, which are now next to modern architectural complexes.

My trip in Netherlands, second day

The next day of our trip, we decided to go back to Amsterdam. First we went to the tourist information point, which is located opposite the central station, to get information on how to reach the characteristic areas with windmills. A very kind gentleman suggests us as a destination Zaanse Schans, a tourist town that is located in the north of Amsterdam. So, following his instructions we took a train that in 20 minutes brought us to this lovely town, where you can breathe the true essence of the Dutch soul.

My trip in Netherlands, first day

Hi everyone,

in this post I would like to tell you about my experience in Netherlands, happened during the month may.

I flew to Amsterdam with my boyfriend on Thursday 24th may, and we are back on Sunday 27th may. Unfortunately, it was just a hit and run but it was just worth it.

We have left from Bologna airport at 10.15 a.m. on Thursday 24th, to land at 12.15 p.m. at Eindhoven airport.

From here we took the bus to reach Utrecht, city that we have chosen to stay during this long weekend. At the beginning, we would have liked to stay in Amsterdam, but you know how are the finances of archaeologists. So we opted for this city and it was a great choice! Our decision has fallen on Luxury Apartments, apartments located in a residential context. We have chosen to stay in apartment to be more independent and not have any kind of connection with breakfast, lunch or dinner at the hotel.

From the apartment the Utrecht Central Station is 10-minute walk away, and from there the trains leave for Amsterdam every 10 minutes, which is half an hour away by train.
