Edinburgh

— 4 nights

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Royal Yacht Britannia and National Museum of Scotland. Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Edinburgh with an excursion to Buchanan Street in Glasgow--about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: look for gifts at Aquila, view the masterpieces at Dovecot Studios, and browse the range of quality goods at Jenners.
