To me, the most friendly city I’ve visited in Europe has to be Amsterdam. The people are genuinely welcoming and don’t seem annoyed that every year, millions of tourists invade their beautiful city. Sure, they get us back by zinging past us on bikes with a mere ching of the bike bell as a warning, but in general, you couldn’t ask for a more accommodating people.

The streets are clean. The city is easy to navigate on foot. And of course, there’s Heineken, always an inviting symbol.
