World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Grassmarket as well as Princes Street Gardens. Your inner history buff will appreciate Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close. Take a break from the city and head to Arthur's Seat and Ross Back Sands Beach. Explore Edinburgh's surroundings by going to Glasgow (The Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel & Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum). Next up on the itinerary: take a tour of Royal Yacht Britannia, pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, and explore the galleries of Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.
