Leiden is one of the most historic cities in the Netherlands. Upon arrival, your guide will take you to the 16th-century town hall, the old Pieterskerk, and to the oldest university in the Netherlands. You’ll visit Rembrandt van Rijns’ birthplace, see where Rembrandt grew up and where he first developed his painting career.
