Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Tue): make a trip to The Royal Mile, stop by Grassmarket, then explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, then look for gifts at Cranachan & Crowdie, and finally take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town. On the next day, get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rosslyn Chapel.

To find more things to do, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
