Edinburgh, begs to be explored

Sudden views and unexpected panoramas

Like many other cities in Europe, Edinburgh has the ancient and the modern side by side, gothic churches and nightclubs, medieval castles and art galleries, and so on, creating an atmosphere that is typical of the continent. But Edinburgh is more than that. It's Scotland to the bones and the people are what makes the difference here, with their typical Scottish accent, vocabulary, friendliness and habits.

It's known as the literacy capital, being designated as the City of Literature by the UNESCO Creative Cities, and being the homeland of many important writers like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Walter Scott. If this is your first time here, you shouldn't miss the amazing landmarks: the Edinburgh Castle, a royal fortress located in one of the highest points of the city and St. Giles' cathedral, the historic city church, that represents the patron saint of the city.

The Scottish parliament and the Grassmarket area are also famous places that have to be visited, and the Camera Obscura, with light from the top of a tower focused on a dish in a dark room below, allowing a 360 degree view on Edinburgh, it’s one of the most astonishing things you are going to see during your trip.

Finally, one of the best things about this city is that you're gonna find a pub in every corner, some very traditional, some famous, others frequented more by the locals. It's an amazing way to dive into the daily life of city and experience Edinburgh in the best way possible.
