Public transport in Amsterdam is well-organized and ‘user friendly’. It can actually be fun to ride one of the trams and take in the city views outside your window. There’s no part of town you can’t reach by tram, metro, bus or ferry.
Parking without a so called ‘parking permit’ can cost you a bit. In the old inner city, parking fares go up to 6 euro an hour. And there’s no fooling the parking controllers. Without hesitation they’ll be happy to fine you, even if you were just parking for a few minutes. As an alternative, you can park your car outside the city limits in one of the transfer garages, or start riding a scooter or bicycle like most of the locals do.
