We are beginning to plan our 2014 Sept./Oct. (Fall) visit to several cities in the Netherlands.
How much time (since we have a lot of time) should we allow for Amsterdam (includes Haarlem), Rotterdam, Maastricht and Utrecht? We want to have Amsterdam as our base for accommodations and take day trips (if this is possible) to the other cities. We would travel by train or whatever mode of transportation you might recommend. Maybe you could recommend other places we should visit instead of the above mentioned.
