CLIMATE
Amsterdam, thanks to its proximity to the sea, enjoys a fairly temperate climate and temperatures are never too harsh: they generally range from a minimum of 1 degree, in December, to a maximum of 21 degrees, in July. The sky is usually covered and we advise you to always provide yourself with raincoats or umbrellas because the rains, also short lasting, may surprise you suddenly. Summer can reach, at times, temperatures of 26-29 degrees, whilst the average temperature of winters is two degrees Celsius, at times there is fog and rain, and it is better to cover yourself well. The best time to visit the Dutch city is from mid-April, when the tulip bulbs bloom, to mid-October. Out of season, on the other hand, it will be easier to find special offers
