Any hotbeds for restaurants or local shops? We enjoy smaller cities and towns and we are driven by good food/restaurants and strolling local shops, markets, parks, architecture/houses.
If we just stayed in Netherlands, after Amsterdam, we’re considering Rotterdam, Utrecht, Leiden, Delft and Giethoorn.
If we go outside Netherlands, here are some cities that caught our eye:
* Bordeaux (if we only did this)
* Colmar (+Eguisheim)
* Bravaria (maybe too far south for this trip)
Thanks for your help!
