My husband and I will be doing a 16 day driving vacation that includes two nights in Amsterdam. I found some awfully cute AirBnB city central places, but when I asked about parking, one owner said, "Parking in Amsterdam is a nightmare! Best to park your car in a Park nRide and take the tram in."
Hmmmm. Normally, not a problem, but because we are spending 30 days in the UK (for work) before this trip, we have larger luggage than we normally would. Not sure about the logistics of parking the car and leaving the luggage? Would that be safe? I mean, we could scale down to a small bag for 2 nights. I think he said there is a ParknRide at the train station, but how awful would it be to drive to the train station? Are there safe places we could lock our larger luggage there?
Alternatively, suggestions on where to stay where we might park for free closer to the perimeter but with easy access to city transport? What will be easiest logistically?
