Best things to do and see in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is one of the most important cities in Scotland, acting as the country's capital as the main reference in terms of politics and economics. The most prominent element of the city is the medieval old part that contrasts with the new part with Georgian gardens as well as buildings with a neoclassical architecture. In addition to all the cultural and historical baggage that this city offers, it is also worth trying the local cuisine while making a stop on your tour of the center of the Scottish capital.
One of the most important points of interest is the Edinburgh Castle where you can see the jewels of the crown of Scotland, as well as the Stone of Destiny that is used for the coronation of the country's own rulers. In your travel guide you should not miss Arthur's Seat, which is located at the top of the Holyrood Park and Palace with a view that is worth enjoying, in addition to Calton Hill with the set of monuments and memorials that are at the top from the hill. If you do not want to be lost when you arrive in Edinburgh, we recommend that you do a free walking tour with an official local guide who will accompany you through the essential places, in addition to telling you the history and information of interest of each monument and building. Travelers who do so are very grateful for all the recommendations they receive, as they also give advice on where to eat, places to buy souvenirs or neighborhoods that are worth visiting in addition to the historic center.
