  22. Having been to Amsterdam a few times mostly when I was younger and predominantly to visit coffee shops and a couple of “Stag nights’ I have however been able to venture out a little and like you say there is so much more to the City than just the touristy stuff, Also as a football fan, a visit to the Ajax arena is a must too. Amsterdam does have so much history and I would definitely like to visit Ann franks house next time I’m there.
