Visit this famous city's parks, museums, galleries, monuments, abbeys and churches, skyscrapers and ruins, Georgian squares. Take in such events as the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower, or the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, or even one of the many theatrical productions. Some of the most exclusive shops are found along Oxford, Bond and Regent Streets. An old favorite and one of the world's premier institutions is Harrods - offering everything from Chanel suits and sliced salmon to caviar and even pets.
Cosmopolitan Amsterdam is most famous for its narrow, gabled houses lining the canals. Interesting attractions include the medieval weighhouse, Royal Palace on Dam Square, and New Church. Its most glamorous industry is the diamond trade. Not too far from Amsterdam are the flower centers of Aalsmeer, the picturesque fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, cheese markets at Edam and Gouda, and historic Haarlem, the main center of the bulb-growing industry.

Facing Dam Square, the Royal Palace was built in 1648 and is still officially the royal residence, although the royal family resides in The Hague.

Other points of interest include museums dedicated to two very famous people: The museum of William the Conqueror contains Tapisserie - which depicts the region's history. The other museum is for Charles de Gaulle, who was the French leader during the German occupation. Outside town are two very significant war memorials - one of which is the Museum of the Battle of Normandy. Bayeux is within reach of a number of Normandy's other attraction, and has plenty of character of its own for those wishing to take a moment away from touring battlefields.
Founded during the Roman period, Caen developed to full splendor in the Renaissance.
