With easy travel, English as a parallel language, a love of the beautiful game, and a nightlife that needs no introduction, visit Amsterdam with football tickets as your passport to a perfect mini-break. How many capitals can you explore by barge or bike, stopping for a relaxing beer along the way?
Between them, Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum display the country's countless gifts to the world of art, while the Golden Age buildings around the Westerkerk are among many remarkably unspoilt districts in the city. Bask in the Vondelpark or combine ancient and modern culture with a well-earned drink in a bruine kroeg - a traditional Amsterdam pub. Football matches in the Amsterdam ArenA, which also houses the Ajax Museum, are already the stuff of legend.
