We visit ‘the largest village in Europe’ this morning on our included excursion to The Hague. Despite its imposing and impressive skyline, The Hague is one of Holland’s greenest cities on account of the many leafy lanes and vast parks. You will have time at leisure here, to explore all the ‘city’ has to offer. This afternoon we travel to the popular Dutch seaside resort of Scheveningen. With wide sandy beaches, pleasant promenade, picturesque harbour, seaside shops, casino and superb eateries there really is something for everyone.
