Will be in Amsterdam for 4.5 days in early April. other than taking 3 different canal tours and seeing the Anne Frank Museum we want to leave the city and travel to picturesque towns outside of Amsterdam with pretty canal sites. We want to use the trains if possible. Suggestions on what to include and how to get there?
Some of the pictures of Leiden look pretty, Haarlem is mentioned, & Delft. Will stop at Kinderijk wind mills previously. Is Markham and Volendam too touristy? Any advice on where and how to get there is appreciated -- we will have no car. Spent part of a long summer in Amsterdam in 1967. Thank you in aavance.
