6. Spend the night in a hidden chapel in Amsterdam
This is probably one of the most special overnight stays on Vipio. This hidden chapel was built in 1751 as a Roman Catholic church. At that time, however, it was illegal to be Roman Catholic in Amsterdam. Believers were severely persecuted. Therefore, this type of hidden church was built so that people could still practice their faith in secret. The church has been converted into a place for a few holy nights. The large double bed is right under the altar making your overnight stay a truly unique experience. The church is close to the sights of Amsterdam and the church is all to yourself during your stay.
