Slim, stylish and pocketable, Amsterdam Directions is full of ideas for stopovers and flying visits to one of Europe's most popular city break destinations, richly illustrated with hundreds of specially commissioned photos. The full-colour introduction features 28 themed spreads from shopping and designer bars to architecture and art galleries. The main section of the guide 'Places', gives a district-by-district account of the sights, restaurants, transport, nightlife and shopping all generously illustrated. Every listing and review is pinpointed on accompanying user-friendly maps.
Martin Dunford and Phil Lee have been writing for Rough Guides almost as long as they have been visiting Amsterdam - over 20 years. Between them, they have also written or contributed to over five other titles, from New York to Toronto.
