We are a group of 10 men who will be travelling to Amsterdam in June. We will be driving two Vintage WWII vehicles and need a place with parking close to Amsterdam, preferably on the East side or near Schipol Airport. Anybody got any good ideas? Thanks, Sid

Hi, friend!
My advice is to leave your car in a pubblic parking and to get an hotel in the city center.
Maybe you can find good information at :
www.naaramsterdam.nl
www.stadstoezicht.amsterdam.nl
www.visitamsterdam.nl

Have a good time!

Hey Artis,
I agree with the previous poster. Most people in Amsterdam get around by bike. You could buy one for cheap (5-15 euros), but be wary who you buy it from because I have heard that often the revenue they make goes right up their arm, know what I mean? There is no way you could get around the city in a WWII ride! In fact, most people in Amsterdam don't even know how to give driving directions- they tell you how to walk/bike, as that is the perfered mode of travel. The roads are cobblestone and often quite narrow and bumpy, especially once you get to the city center. Plus, there are confusing one-ways, etc. A better idea would be to find some public parking and reserve the vehicle for daytrips outside of the city. Good luck :)
