World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Edinburgh Old Town and Edinburgh Castle. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Real Mary King's Close and Palace of Holyroodhouse.

There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, get curious at Dynamic Earth, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.
