For a mix of bustling cities and sprawling countryside, look no further than the Netherlands. This small country is one of the most densely populated in Europe, ensuring that there is always something exciting going on. A holiday to the Netherlands typically begins in Amsterdam, a perfect weekend city break complete with romantic canals, fascinating museums and an eclectic nightlife.
