World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Do your shopping at Grassmarket and Aquila. Escape the urban bustle at Portobello Beach and Arthur's Seat. Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, get to know the fascinating history of The Royal Mile, see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, and contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close.

For maps, photos, and other tourist information, read Edinburgh itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 13°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
