1. Amsterdam, Netherlands: Get to view over 200 masterpieces at the Van Gogh Museum

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "We were in Amsterdam for a specific concert but there are loads to do in the city, although just getting lost amongst the canals in itself is extremely enjoyable. The modern art museum was fantastic."

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "The weather was fantastic so we made the most of it and enjoyed the parks and museum complexes and gardens, as well as taking a sightseeing boat ride. Enjoyed drinks in the evening as well as some Argentinian steak houses!"

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Weather was warm and sunny. Went to van Gogh museum where there was a very good restaurant with lovely food at a very cheap price. Went on a canal cruise which is a good way to see the city. Went to visit a friend and got lost on the way but locals all very friendly and helpful."

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "Many major museums and art galleries are free. There are many lovely parks in central London which can be enjoyed by all ages.
