I left the hotel in Rome then walked towards the Ottaviano station of Rome Metro. Good thing I still have the ticket (below). Fare was 1.50 euros and I used the ticket at 5:50 AM.
My next destination was Termini or the central station. I bought a ticket there that would take me to Fiumicino Airport. Fare was 14 euros.
I paid 4,199.33 Philippine pesos for the one-way Rome to Amsterdam flight.
The best ticket ever! Unlimited train rides in the city for 24 hours for just 7.50 euros.

I wanted to stay longer in the hotel to rest but I had limited time in Amsterdam. I’d go to Zaanse Schans, a place just outside Amsterdam proper that is home to lots of windmills.
Here are the online articles (not mine) that I used to help me find my way to Zaanse Schans:
Going to back to Amsterdam:
Museum of Prostitution: Red Light Secrets
Entrance ticket is worth 10 euros, but you can find vouchers in practically all touristy areas in Amsterdam that give 2-euro discounts.
The Old Church or Oude Kerk as viewed from the red light district. The only church I’ve ever seen that is located at a red light district.
I didn’t want to be in the red light district at night so I returned to the hotel before sunset. Besides I had to rest for a while again before going on a night cruise.
I booked online and paid 21 dollars on July 25, 2016. Then when I was actually already in Amsterdam, I exchanged the voucher for the ticket below that shows 0 euro.
