We recently visited Amsterdam for the first time and wasn't too sure on our navigation skills throughout the city.
Dam square was a big landmark for us, we went there almost every day, for us it became the centrepiece of the city. The roads that branched off were full of exciting shops and places. There is plenty of food choice about.
The people are very nice, lots of tourists gather here.
The monument just the other side of the road is fantastic and worthy for a few pictures of you and your friends/family.
I recommend giving Dam square a visit when you go to Amsterdam, it's a wonderful place and I imagine it to be even better when it's summertime.
Visited March 2013.
