Walking through the historic city center of Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh is like entering a time machine back to the medieval era. The city has a Medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town, which are both made up of winding streets lined with historic buildings.
Top things to do in Edinburgh include exploring Edinburgh Castle, which dates back to the 12th century and is home to Scotland’s crown jewels, visiting Arthur’s Seat, which is a peak in Holyrood Park that offers panoramic views of the Scottish countryside, and finding out more about Scottish history at the Museum of Scotland.
Meanwhile, if you like shopping, head to the 'Royal Mile' which is packed with boutiques and shops selling traditional Scottish souvenirs, such as whiskey, shortbread and tartan kilts.
Edinburgh is a compact city and the best place to stay is in the historic center, so you are within walking distance from the main sites.
It can get really cold in Edinburgh, so the best time to visit is in the summer months of July and August, when the weather is warm and in general, sunny. Bring an umbrella however, as it can rain even during the summer months.
